(Salem, OR)  --  The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality says it needs more money to address pollution problems in the air over southeast Portland.  DEQ spokesman Dick Pedersen told KOIN-TV the department is requesting one-point-five-million-dollars for monitoring and implementation resources.  Some lawmakers, including Representative Jim Weidner of Yamhill, say land-use regulations should be re-examined and efforts made to keep residents out of industrial zones.  Officials say recent air-quality testing in southeast Portland has revealed elevated levels of toxic metals that have been linked to the Bullseye and Uroboros glass companies.
