Willamette Meteorite was finally old news
Rep. John Lim brought the meteorite back into the headlines
statewide campaign to bring the meteorite back to its home state.
this is not the first time Rep. Lim has taken interest in the Willamette Meteorite—
his attempt was unsuccessful
Sunday's failure to sell the crown piece of the Willamette Meteorite
he aims to buy the 30-pound piece for around $360,000
“I'm willing to donate a reasonable amount towards the campaign, about $1,000,”
elementary schools, high schools, indigenous peoples, and members of the Legislature,
donate just $1 towards the campaign.
ultimately like to see the crown piece end up at Portland's Oregon Museum of Science and Industry
“belongs to the people of Oregon.”
intends to bring the issue up again in next year's Legislature
