Part of Series:

To paraphrase that brilliant political brain trust, Monty Python … the Columbia River Crossing is “not dead yet.”

A group of CRC supporters has sent letters to the governors of Oregon and Washington, asking to consider a revised proposal that wouldn’t cost as much.

The workers who would build the new bridge might be represented by unions that have been the focus of developments this week as well.

And the governor warned lawmakers that he may veto a bill on the names of team mascots that some see as demeaning to native people.

Fridays, we talk politics with Bill and Jeff. Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst. Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian.
