218

374

Sen. Verger

States that she does not know whether there has been any wrong doing.

073

Chair Shields

Hands the gavel over to Sen. Walker.

083

176

Acting Chair       Sen. Walker

Asks Mr. McGuire if the Secretary of State has the authority to draw on the skills of an economist.

178

McGuire

Responds that he does not believe that would be a particular problem. Explains the difficulty is in having an economist to use auditing standards.

197

Sen. Verger

Asks if Mr. McGuire agrees that every tax credit has gone through some process for approval.

203

McGuire

Responds to his knowledge there was legislative approval.

204

Sen. Verger

Asks if tax credit determinations could be a philosophical position.

206

McGuire

Responds there are dozens of factors that go into legislative decisions.

215

Sen. Verger

Using the pollution tax credit as an example, asks what form would this take, how would it be judged, what are the impacts to the economy, and what kind of position does it put jobs in.  

248

McGuire

Responds the intention would not be to rate tax credits as good or bad. States the goal is provide unbiased information to the legislature.

264

Sen. Verger

Cites Enterprize Zones as an example asking if the audit would require visiting each company.

275

Acting Chair       Sen. Walker

States that the analysis would be that tax credit either met or didn’t meet expectations, or the tax credit is indeterminate.

280

McGuire

Reiterates that he is not sure if the connection can be made that a tax credit is wholly, partially, or not at all responsible for the outcome.

288

Sen. B. Starr

Asks how much money will be asked of the Committee on Ways and Means to accomplish this task.

291

McGuire

Responds that this is not the Secretary of State’s bill and they do not have a budget request.

300

Sen. B. Starr

Asks what it would cost the Secretary of State.  

301

McGuire

Responds that this is an authorization not a directive. Explains if this was enacted, results would be dependent on funding levels for additional audits.

320

Sen. B. Starr

Notes that this bill requires the Secretary of State Audits Division to adopt rules to accomplish this. Asks what is the typical cost of adopting rules.

335

McGuire

Responds they use the book on auditing rules from the Government Accounting Standards Board that directs auditors on how to behave. Speculates that rules already enacted would probably cover anything in this regard.

331

Sen. B. Starr

States it seems the rules would be different.

360

McGuire

Responds the difference would be in the number of disclaimers regarding cause and effect.

360

Sen. George

Asks what would be accomplished that has not been accomplished by the legislative process.

368

McGuire

Responds that auditors could bring a more through review of whether results are being achieved but whether new jobs are created because of a growing economy or a tax credit can not be said.

415

Sen. Walker Acting Chair

Hands the gavel to Sen. George.

419

Damiana Merryweather

Lobbyist, Stand For Children. Submits and summarizes prepared testimony in support for SB 964 (EXHIBIT H).

475

Sen. B. Starr

Notes there are limited resources available to the Secretary of State to do audits. Asks if this is more important that other audits.

480

Merryweather

Responds the Secretary of State has discretion to determine how to allocate resources on what should be audited. Adds it would be a natural fit where tax expenditures work in conjunction with direct expenditures.

TAPE 47, B

043

Sen. B. Starr

References the $5.4 billion for schools (EXHIBIT H) and asks if Stand For Children is doing anything regarding the salaries and benefits that teachers get in Oregon; Oregon being the eighth highest paid teachers in the nation and ranking 49th in class sizes.

049

Merryweather

Responds she can not speak to those issue but would be willing to discuss them.

055

184

Sen. George

202

Col. Caldwell

247

Sen. George

Asks is there a structure that would include the Reservist.

256

MacDonald

Responds it would have to be coordinated between the reserve units, the regular units and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Wonders why the bill is necessary.

382

McDonald

Answers it is needed for the Vietnam vets.

415

024

Jan Coleman

Yamhill County Clerk, Representing the Oregon Association of County Clerks. Submits prepared testimony in opposition to the bill        (EXHBIT J). States the DD214 is public record and if closed it would close the public records in the counties. States the military discharges are commingled with land records in 31 counties.

070

Sen. Verger

Asks if it would be better if the discharge records were limited to family members.

078

Coleman

Responds that these records go back to the forming of the counties and have been commingled with the land records; a lot of people do their own research at public stations.

Coleman

086

Tom Gallagher

Representing Oregon Newspapers Publishers Association.

119

Sen. George

Ask how would the records be separated without setting up a new data base.

121

Gallagher

Notes that identifiers could be in three places.

128

384

Chair Shields

Asks if there is any way a company might reorganize to avoid the obligation.

385
