Abstract: Connect Oregon is a lottery-bond-based initiative that will invest in all forms of transportation. According to the Governor and Connect Oregon, "Moving people and moving goods to market are vital to Oregon's economic success. ConnectOregon will move people and products by investing statewide in Oregon's marine, rail, aviation and transit systems. Building off the success of the Governor's 2003 transportation initiative for roads and bridges, ConnectOregon is the Governor's 2005 proposal for needed improvements in Oregon's deep water ports, airports, freight rail and transit systems to meet the multi-modal needs of the 21st century and beyond."
