Don't be surprised if Oregon tolls the I-205.

Rep. Ann Rivers had the tolling bill amended to eliminate possible tolling on I-205... right?

Not so fast.

That bill doesn't apply to what Oregon might do on their side of the river.  And while tolls on the I-5 bridge WILL serve to keep SOME Oregon shoppers and tourist-types on their side of the bridge, tolls on the I-205 would be a crushing blow to retailers on this side of the river, in addition to the massive injury they would have to sustain by this act of shooting us in the economic foot through vaporizing $100,000,000 a year in disposable income from the 65,000 area residents who commute and their families who have to pay this extortion.

But since this isn't about the people... since this scam is about enriching the special interests who own the CRC cheerleaders... why would those ramming this down our throats care?

Just sayin'.

It would be just another way to milk more out of the poor Washington saps that work in Portland.
