(Salem, OR)  --  Loggers and timber workers demonstrated for a second day yesterday outside the Oregon capitol to protest the cap and invest bill that has the State Senate torn.  They say the bill will stop logging on state lands.  The program will allow utilities and companies that produce large amounts of greenhouse gases to buy credits to offset the pollution.  If it passes, it's expected to cause gas prices to increase 22 cents a gallon in the first year.
