Oregon-Washington chapter of Common Ground USA

We promote legislation that democratizes use of land and natural resources in these two states — that treats land and natural resources more like a commonwealth for the productive use of all residents, rather than as a commodity to be speculated on and for generating unearned income.

Taxing private use of land and natural resources keeps prices low and stable, to better share ownership and encourage productivity (“highest and best use”).

Take a look at our Legislative Action tabs for more information about our current focus!
