The legislature has created a joint committee to deal with the funding bills for the Columbia River Crossing (in search of $450M for Oregon’s share of the funding). This appears to be designed to expedite getting the bill(s) to the floor of the respective chambers for a quick vote.
The joint committee has scheduled a six hour public hearing for Monday (3-9pm), and project skeptics and opponents are making an effort to get a large turnout.
Whether or not you can make it down, please consider contacting your legislator to make your feelings known. Directions from the Facebook page:
This is crunchtime…
