(Olympia, WA)  --  Governor Jay Inslee is hoping a bill he's just signed into law will get Washington and Oregon lawmakers working together on how to replace the Interstate 5 bridge over the Columbia River.  While the southwest Washington contingent was happy to get the bill passed, its Oregon counterparts have been less than enthusiastic.  Many Oregon legislators are saying they still have a bitter taste from the failed Columbia River Crossing project.  The bill calls for creating a legislative action committee with Oregon and creates a regional bridge authority to consider the possibility of new bridges rather than just a replacement for the 100-year-old I-5 bridge.
