State Representative Jason Conger of Bend says this is going to be a big week in the Oregon Legislature.

 

Three controversial bills should be heard:  "The Columbia River Crossing, which is the construction of a replacement bridge between Portland and Vancouver, probably to be voted out of committee. That's a huge financial commitment for the State of Oregon, the State of Washington and the federal government. And the aggregate project is expected to cost $3.4 billion. Oregon’s portion for that, at least the initial stage, the bridge itself is about $450-million."

 

Conger says other items on the Legislative list include a comprehensive PERS reform bill and tuition equity, which he believes the way the bill is written now, is more of a political statement rather than a solution, because even if these "undocumented" children get an education, they still won't be able to get a job in the U.S. until they are legal.
