(Salem, OR)  --  The Columbia River Crossing project is expected to be the main focus of the Oregon legislative session that will convene today.  Lawmakers will try to pull together financing for the project without help from the state of Washington, whose legislature withdrew last year from setting aside funding for the project.  The Oregon Department of Transportation recently released a report saying money generated by tolls could cover half the two-point-seven-billion-dollar cost of the I-5 crossing.  The Legislature will also take up issues that include the Cover Oregon website and a proposal to require background checks for all private gun sales.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
