Gov. Kate Brown changes course on $4 million dam veto

Oregonian - 08-09


Gov. Kate Brown has decided not to veto $4 million in state funding to help replace dams in Newport, as she was considering doing earlier this week. That news was first reported earlier Friday by the Newport News Times, which cited an interview with Rep. David Gomberg, D-Otis, who pushed back against the governor’s plan to line-item veto the money. Gomberg told the Newport News Times that Brown called him Thursday evening to deliver the news.
