The chief sponsor of an Oregon bill that would dedicate I-84 to Vietnam Vets says local veterans made a big difference in the bill's success. Last week- the bill passed in the senate by a 28 to 0 vote.  Chief sponsor Republican State Senator Tim Knopp of Bend says nearby states may also follow Oregon's lead.

 

“This is one of those things where we have an opportunity to honor those vets from the Viet Nam war. and Oregon can do some amazing things in terms of being able to honor these veterans- and naming i-84 for them i think is exceptional." 

 

Republican State Representative John Huffman of The Dalles is also a sponsor of the bill.  More than 57,000 Oregonians served in the Vietnam war.
