Nearly every Lincoln County capital project proposed at this year’s legislative session was included in House Bill 5006 set to head to the floor today (Friday) for a final vote.

The bill is expected to pass and head to Gov. Kate Brown’s desk next week. If signed, HB 5006 would bring more than $40 million in funding for the various projects to Lincoln County.
