it was another big vote in the Oregon house-  this time a large majority of lawmakers passed a bill that gives the green light to the  largest public project in state history.  Monday morning in a 45 to 11 vote the Oregon House authorized the state to issue $450 million in bonds to fund the state's portion of a $3.4 billion project.  State Representative Jason Conger of Bend explains his "yes" vote.

"it will create jobs- it will make Oregon more competitive- not just for Portland but for all of Oregon - because this has a huge impact of our ability to move freight from oregon to washington and it will help improve access to the port of portland which is a big point of entry and point of exit for goods."

The huge project could also bring in federal dollars to expand light rail from Portland to downtown Vancouver. Critics in Oregon say the project represents unchecked highway sprawl - and detractors in Washington State want to strip light rail from the plan.
