BREAKING NEWS: MLB JOBS BILL PASSES OREGON LEGISLATURE!

Thank you to all of those who have supported the campaign by continually contacting legislators and advocating so effectively for the bill's passage. Your efforts made the crucial difference!

Please take a moment to thank Oregon legislators who recognized the value of bringing jobs, economic development and Major League Baseball to Oregon.
