Senate President Says Not Enough Votes For Climate Bill

(Salem, OR)  --  Oregon's landmark climate bill is likely dead in the water as Republicans continue their now week-long walkout aimed at blocking a vote on the legislation.  The Oregon Senate President said yesterday there aren't enough votes for the climate bill to pass.  Senate President Peter Courtney said the announcement is not a strategy to get Republicans to return for a vote but suggested that some Democrats have changed their minds.  The bill puts a cap on gas emissions.  All eleven Republican state senators walked out of the state Capitol last week and remain missing in action, with many in hiding out of state.
