Oregon state websites down for much of Monday



SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Some State of Oregon websites were down for much of the day on Monday.

Department of Administrative Services spokeswoman Amy Velez says the outage was related to trouble at the Texas data center that stores their content. It began at 6:31 a.m. Websites were functioning normally by mid-afternoon.

The public was not able to access information on the websites for many agencies, but Velez says the outage did not affect any internal state business operations.
