A bill before the Oregon Legislature today can have a direct impact on the education community in Central Oregon. Representative Jason Conger will lead a delegation of Central Oregon community leaders to testify in the legislature about issuing bonds to help enhance the OSU Cascades campus. "We're having a hearing for the first time on a bill I introduced with the rest of the Central Oregon delegation to issue bonds to match local funds and donations to purchase a building in Bend for the OSU Cascades graduate programs." Conger says Tammy Baney, Becky Johnson and several more leaders will hopefully impress on the legislature how important it is and how necessary a new building for OSU Cascades can be. Conger says although this is the first hearing; the bill probably won't be voted on for several more weeks because of the long list of capital construction bills that are waiting for a vote.
