A bill that allows Redmond to put 465 acres back into their industrial inventory is in jeopardy in Salem.  State Senator Chris Telfer says SB 1544 passed unanimously in the Senate and that made it attractive in the House for what is called a "Gut and Stuff" in political slang. House member Dave Hunt wants to stuff his more controversial bill into Senate Bill 1544, and Telfer says that could kill the whole thing. "So this is where you've got a good bill, job creation, it would allow Central Oregon to have the biggest inventories of industrial sites in the state, and it could get killed because of a bill that one individual wants to have, that can't even get a hearing on its own.” The land is near the Redmond Airport and many economic development leaders believe it would be very attractive to manufacturing companies to locate there.
