(Portland, OR)  --  The Oregon Department of Transportation is seeking federal approval to enact tolls on Interstate 5 and Interstate 205 at the Washington state border.  The Oregon Transportation Committee voted yesterday to approve a plan to seek approval for the pilot program.  The tolls would affect drivers on I-5 from Multnomah Boulevard north to Alberta Street and on I-205 at the George Abernethy Bridge.  Committee co-chair Sean O'Hollaren says they've heard from residents in Clark County, Washington who say they feel like they're being discriminated against, but that's not the case.  Meanwhile, Representative Jaimie Herrera Beutler of southwest Washington says she plans to bring legislation to Congress aimed at preventing a toll at the Washington-Oregon border without consent from both states' governors.
