SALEM, OR -- The Oregon Senate approved legislation to extend the low carbon fuel standard in the state.  The bill passed Tuesday following three hours of debate on the Senate floor.

 

Republicans tried to have the issue go to the voters, but Democrats voted down that suggestion down.  Republican leaders had wanted to wait until the investigation into Governor Kitzhaber's fiancee Cylvia Hayes and her potential influence involving this legislation was clear, but Democratic lawmakers rejected the delay.
