Oregon Motor Fuel and Commercial Vehicle Tax Increases, Measure 8 (1976)
The Oregon Motor Fuel and Commercial Vehicle Tax Increases Act, also known as Measure 8, was on the November 2, 1976 ballot in Oregon as a veto referendum, where it was defeated, thus overturning the legislation. The measure would have increased the motor fuel tax from seven to eight cents per gallon and graduated weight-mile and flat fee tax rates for commercial vehicles and created a legislative interim committee to review transportation regulations, highway use taxes, expenditures and allocation of revenues and other matters.
