8. Different project?
The one I am talking about is linked to Mount Hood Meadows Ski Area. They wanted to expand and build more, and the State wouldn't allow them to build on the cutover private timberlands they bought just for the project. So, the developer got some Oregon lawmaker to propose and write-up a bill to make the trade for Forest Service lands, up on the mountain. The Omnibus Bill is always a repository for all the bills which cannot stand on their own merits. It doesn't matter what political party is in power because it is traditional to automatically push for its quick passage. However, this year, they didn't have the 2/3's vote to pass it on its own. So, they attached it as an Amendment on a Civil War battlefield bill, so they would only need to have a 51% vote.
