A bill in the Oregon Legislature would require environmental control on air pollution from dairy farms.

Oregon lawmakers considered a proposal this week they thought might fix the funding problem in the Oregon Public Employee Retirement System. They are also considering whether to take away some or all of your mortgage interest tax deduction. Unused gift cards would change under a bill that after five years would send them to the State’s fund for abandoned money. And, another bill would require dairy farms to control air pollution from the cows.
