Good News....Bonds for Oregon's New Basketball Arena are authorized by Oregon Legislature

Quote from online Register Guard newspaper late last night:

SALEM — The Legislature sent to the governor bills authorizing $200 million in bonds and the construction of a new University of Oregon basketball arena.

The House voted 46-10 and the Senate voted 22-8 Friday evening to authorize the bonds. The separate construction-authorization bill passed more handily: 51-5 in the House and 22-8 in the Senate.

With the Legislature’s work complete, the arena will require only Gov. Ted Kulongoski’s promised signature and final approval from the state treasurer and the Oregon Board of Higher Education.

On to Governor Kulongoski who said he will sign !!!!
