Central Oregon lawmakers hope to vote on approval for a new OSU Cascades building today. The bill was delayed last week when legislators got hung up on public safety issues. OSOU Cascades Vice President Becky Johnson is cautiously optimistic the bill will be approved the Ways and Means Committee: “Well, we're trying to purchase the building right now because we feel it’s a good time because of the lower prices. We’ve identified a building that has access capacity for us right now.” The building they want to purchase is the former Edge Wireless building on Columbia Street near downtown Bend. If approved, the state would issue nearly a $2-million bond to buy the building. It will house OSU Cascades graduate programs.
