Those who support efforts to bring a facility for grad programs at OSU Cascades have reason to celebrate today. In Salem, lawmakers are expected to pass a Lottery Bond Bill that includes $2 million in lottery bonds for the project. State Representative Jason Conger of Bend says if the bill passes the facility should be ready for students as soon as this fall. "In the fall semester of this year all of the OSU faculty, staff and students should be housed in the new facility. It also saves money for OSU Cascades because we'll be able to avoid the cost of leasing additional space." Conger says if the bill passes as expected, it’s a big victory for Central Oregon because these lottery bond projects were really scrutinized and about half of the requests were turned down and never made it into the bill.
