$4 million has been raised in support of Measures 66 and 67, $3.6 million of which came from public employee unions.

Meanwhile, opponents have raised $3.7 million, mostly from businesses, trade associations and wealthy individuals.

Both measures, approved last year by the Democrat-controlled Legislature, appear on the Jan. 26 ballot. Mail-in ballots will be sent to Oregon voters starting Friday. Measure 66 would increase state income taxes on high-income households. Measure 67 would raise business taxes, primarily on large corporations.
