Another big marine facility for Newport? � Daily Journal of Commerce – Building and Construction News in Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest: "One huge project already is raising Newport’s status as a world leader in oceanic research while promising long-term jobs for the state’s depressed construction industry. Another project may soon follow.
Oregon State University’s Marine Mammal and Marine Genomics Building got a boost from the Oregon Legislature, which dedicated $9 million in state money to the $25 million project. Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed House Bill 3643 into law last week."
