IRS to probe McMinnville aviation museum

The Internal Revenue Service will investigate whether the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum complies with its tax-exempt status.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum says the state won't take enforcement action against the McMinnville-based Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum.

Rosenblum says her agency is also concerned about the "significant interrelationships" between the museum and for-profit Evergreen companies.
