PENDLETON — Provisions secured by Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley in annual spending legislation introduced on Thursday, July 28 include substantial funds for Northeast Oregon projects.
Should the spending bill be signed into law, the largest local appropriation would be $6 million to the Oregon Military Department’s Camp Umatilla west of Hermiston. The funds are earmarked for housing facilities construction needed by the expanded regional infantry training institute there. This grant is bigger than the next three in the region combined.
