Deschutes County Commissioners are watching lawmakers to see if they'll pass legislation that will bring "shovel ready" jobs to the area. Senate Bill 1544 would exempt 465 acres of industrial land near the Redmond Airport from certain transportation requirements and access standards.  Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney explains: “This allows us to apply different standards that give certainty to that process, versus the current standards where they are on the ground today. So it helps give certainty versus going through a process that may not allow for that at the end of the day."  Baney says two other bills they are monitoring would reform health care and streamline agencies that govern early learning programs in Oregon.
