LTD Payroll Tax Increase Trend


Support for the LTD payroll tax increase has gone up and opposition has gone down so, now, the difference is statistically significant.

Interestingly, the undecided are still at nearly 20% and the total support is still under 50%. This implies that, though the net support is positive, it has not yet firmed up.

QUESTION: Do you support or oppose Lane Transit District increasing its payroll tax from $7 per $1,000 payroll to $8 per $1,000 payroll over the next ten years?
IF APPROVE/DISAPPROVE: Is that strongly or somewhat?
IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

METHODOLOGY: 200 telephone interviews of City of Eugene likely general election voters were conducted the nights of September 21-22 and December 1-2, 2015. The margin of error at the median is 7%. Figures may not add up to 100% due to rounding.
