Surprise Surprise Clackamas County Vehicle Registration Fee Was Never Needed for the Sellwood Bridge!

To All COLA LO Members,

Surprise!!!!   This week it was announced that the Federal Government will pick up $17 million in expenses for the Sellwood Bridge work. 

Yes that's right, the proposed Vehicle Registration Fee that was approved by our own Clackamas County Commission and our own Commissioner Ann Lininger was never needed.  

It was as citizen activists claimed in fact a "backdoor tax"  to pay for a bridge that was the responsibility of Multnomah County.  

Voters soundly approved a citizen driven ballot measure that prevented the Fee in last May's election despite an overwhelming attempt by County Commissioners including Ann Lininger to support the tax and drive voters against the initiative.  

The Oregonian reported on the grant but not all the details in the following article:   Sellwood Bridge Grant.
Blog comments can be found in this article and also at another Blog article:   Must be a Dream

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends regarding this important revelation after the fact.
