The ORH Key-PAC is your legislative advocacy organization, but we can’t do it without you! Never have we faced such opposition and lopsided efforts to restrict the rights of property owners in Oregon. With a triple Democrat majority in the state and new redistricting maps creating even more unfair voting blocs, now more than ever we must act.
What is a PAC and what do they do? Political Action Committee (PAC) — PAC is a popular term for a political committee organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect candidates who support their interests. Most PACs represent business, labor, or ideological interests. PACs can give $5,000 to a candidate committee per election (primary, general, or special). They can also give up to $15,000 annually to any national party committee, and $5,000 annually to any other PAC. PACs may receive up to $5,000 from any one individual, PAC, or party committee per calendar year.
So, it’s all about money? Yep! Campaign contributions open doors to our message, “Housing providers are the solution, not the problem to our housing crisis.” With strategic donations, we develop relationships that inform and educate our lawmakers on the struggles and concerns of housing providers, encouraging them to see our point of view when they are involved in legislative changes to the rental housing industry.
What political parties does the PAC donate to? Donations are disbursed to candidates in all political parties based on the recommendations of our Lobbyist Shawn Miller and Legislative Director Jason Miller. The recommendations for donations are based on a candidate’s history in supporting fair and reasonable housing policies and their willingness to listen to our concerns.
Can I get a tax credit for my donation? Yes, you can! Individuals can donate up to $50 and each couple filing jointly can donate up to $100 annually and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit up to those amounts. And, of course, you can always donate more.
