Much of Oregon’s Congressional delegation sees nothing but good news for the state in the passage of the federal infrastructure legislation.

The U.S. House on Friday passed the $1.2 trillion package to fix roads, airports, railways and broadband across the country.

The state’s four Democrat representatives voted for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, including U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici in the 1st Congressional District; U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer in the 3rd Congressional District; U.S. Rep. Peter DeFazio in the 4th Congressional District, and U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader in the 5th Congressional District . . .
