EUGENE, Ore -- A new Political Action Committee is throwing its support behind the push for the new Lane County Courthouse, which would be funded in part by a proposed $154 million bond measure.

Lane County voters will make their voices heard during a special election on May 21, and Equal Justice for All hope people vote yes on Measure 20-290.

Roger Cox, the PAC's director, said they have raised over $22,000 and have received over 40 endorsements, including from members of the Eugene City Council, Lane County Sheriff's Office and Lane County Commissioners.

"We are proud of the support we have received thus far," Cox said. "We have an eclectic group of supporters, from the legal community, the sheriff, the business community, unions, environmental groups and child advocates like myself."

Equal Justice for All's website claims a new courthouse would strengthen the justice system in the community by expanding specialty courts such as veterans, mental health and drug courts, among other things.
