    Mascot bill passes House, heads to governor; Sprenger preps for travel

    A bill allowing school districts to work with local tribes to use Native American names and images has passed the Oregon House and is on its way to the governor.
    Gov. John Kitzhaber has said he will sign Senate Bill 1509, which provides a way out for districts that otherwise faced the loss of state funding if they didn’t ditch Indian-related team names and imagery by 2017.
