Oregon Democrats Set to Back Down on Climate Bill That Sent GOP Lawmakers Into Hiding
REUTERSOregon Democrats appear set to abandon the climate-change bill that prompted Republican state senators to flee the state, after the Democratic state senate president said Tuesday that the bill doesn't have enough votes to pass.
