Lobbyist driven politics is alive in Salem. Rep. Mitch Greenlicks proposed studded tire fee magically turned into a new study. I suggest the Legislators open their eyes while driving. It’s even a lot more than the $10 they were proposing. I’m sick & tired of driving on unsafe rutted out and chewed up roads. 84% of Oregonians don’t use studded tires, it’s a small minority of drivers, who should pay for their privilege to ruin our roads. If studded tires were required in winter then 100% of Oregonians would use them.
Les Schwab and the Gallentin Group are responsible for derailing this much needed legislation. There have been numerous studies ALL calling for a ban or fee and studded tires, yet special interest rules the day in Salem.
Please write your Legislator and tell them you want something done on our behalf not Les Schwabs.
BOYCOTT LES SCHWAB LET’S SEND THE MESSAGE WERE SICK & TIRED OF THEIR BUSINESS MODEL THAT REQUIRES US TO FIX THE DAMAGE THEIR PRODUCT CAUSES.
IT’S CALLED CORPORATE WELFARE.
