in your voice, your vote -- voter pamphlets for oregon's upcoming special election will go out today. the special election is happening january 23rd. the controversial measure 101 will be on the ballot. it would add a tax on hospitals, insurance companies, and other entities. a "yes" vote ensures health insurance for 400-thousand children. this is according to supporters. those supporters also say 95 percent of oregonians will have access to healthcare if measure 101 passes. and they claim premiums will lower for 210-thousand oregonians. and just as a reminder the last day to register is january 2nd, which is only one week away. opponents say you should vote no on 101. one of those opponents is roseburg state representative cedric hayden. on hayden's facebook page, he calls 101 an inequitable tax. he says there's not enough accountability. he it's not sustainable either. we'll ask congressman peter defazio today about whether he supports measure 101. defazio is stopping by kezi nine news this afternoon. we're also asking the congressman about train safety after the train crash in washington. plus, the g-o-p tax plan. plan
