A proposal to move Oregons border to join Idaho is gaining support according to the organizers of the group called Greater Idaho.
Last year Greater Idaho succeeded in getting petitions approved for circulation in two Oregon counties. Now the groups proposal called Move Oregons Border will be on the ballot in five Oregon counties this May.
If approved, Southern and Eastern Oregon, as well as the northern most part of California would join the Gem State.
"Our signatures that we collect for petitions are good for two years, said Mike McCarter, Greater Idaho President. "We're not trying to change a single thing with Idaho, we just want to come alongside them and help maintain the values that are in Idaho and the rural values that we have here in Oregon.
