It's a major transportation project that's been talked about in Oregon for about 17 years.  Earlier this week a bill related to the Columbia River Crossing project passed in the house by a 45 to 11 vote. Two Democrats with voters near the project voted against it- and nine Republicans joined them.  One was State Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver.

 

"My final decision on the no vote on the bill is i don't think the advocates on the bill are being honest with the people of oregon in saying there's going to be some costs- gas taxes or other things to pay for this. “

 

The other Central Oregon Representatives: Jason Conger of Bend, John Huffman of The Dalles and Mike McLane of Powell Butte,  voted in favor of the bill. 

They say while the project is not perfect the gridlock needs to stop in that i-five corridor in order to keep the overall economy strong.  "Les Schwab" is also supporting the bill.
