Oregon's Land Use Laws Won't Get 'Big Look'

Funding for an independent review of the state's planning system is slashed, with fingers pointing blame in many directions.

Oregon's much-vaunted "Big Look" at the state's land use planning system has folded after state lawmakers eliminated its funding.
