Talking Oregon Transportation Funding on Think Out Loud

On Monday, May 18th, OPB’s Think Out Loud hosted a conversation about a comprehensive transportation package to increase funding for roads and bridges. Though this has received bipartisan support for quite some time, things came to a halt when some lawmakers started using the recently passed Clean Fuels bill as a bargaining chip for the package.

OEC’s Program Director of Climate, Jana Gastellum, joins Ryan Deckert, president and CEO of the Oregon Business Association, to talk about the transportation package and what it means for our state.
