Oregon Legislature Wants To Toll Freeways In Portland Metro Area – An Initiative Petition Has Been Filed To Let Voters Decide The Issue. Signatures Are Needed.

Initiative Petition 10 is an Oregon ballot measure that if successful, will let Oregon voters vote on whether or not the state should toll our EXISTING freeways.

WHY ARE PETITIONERS GATHERING SIGNATURES?

In 2017, the Oregon Legislature passed a law that would begin the implementation of freeway tolls starting in the Portland-Metro area.  While the thought is to start with I-205 at the Abernathy Bridge and I-5 in the Rose Quarter, the vision of a group of politicians who support tolls is that someday, all of our Metro-area freeways will be in a tolled system, potentially costing drivers thousands of dollars in user fees, on top of a high-cost, state gas tax.

IP-10 Petitioners State Rep. Mike Nearman, former State Rep. Julie Parrish, and Gladstone Planning Commissioner Les Poole are gathering signatures to get this to the 2020 ballot because they believe you should have a say on such a critical change to our transportation infrastructure.
