The Oregon Local Property Tax Levies Amendment, known in the legislature as Senate Joint Resolution 10, did not make the November 2014 statewide ballot in Oregon as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have amended Article XI of the Oregon Constitution to allow local voters to pass property tax levies that exceed the current statewide limits of $5 per $1,000 of assessed valuation for school districts and $10 per $1000 of assessed valuation for all other local governments. SJR 10 failed in the legislature on July 8, 2013.[1]
