SALEM, Oregon: Just days after hearing from election officials that the Oregon Job Growth Education And Communities Fund Act, Part I had fallen short of enough signatures to qualify for the November ballot, its backers said they would file a lawsuit against the Oregon Secretary of State.[1]

The casino-backed initiative hit a roadblock when Secretary of State Kate Brown announced that only one of two related initiatives met the state's petition signature requirements and qualified for the 2010 statewide ballot. According to reports, supporters of both initiatives were pleased that at least one qualified for the ballot. However, in order for the Wood Village casino project to move forward, the project requires the approval of both initiatives.[2]
