A bill that helps Redmond have the largest block of industrial lands in the State has passed in the House and is now on its way to the Governor's desk. Earlier this week, we told you the bill was in jeopardy because of what's known as a 'gut and stuff' in political jargon. Democratic Representative Dave Hunt was trying to stuff one of his bills into it, which could've killed the whole thing. State Representative Jason Conger of Bend says he was glad to see the "gut and stuff" attempt blocked: “In my opinion, it was a very overtly political maneuver. It wasn't a question of policy or what's best for Oregon, I was very glad that the attempt by Dave Hunt to hijack this thing failed." The bill allows Redmond to put 465 acres of land back into its inventory of industrial lands. Supporters call it a great jobs bill for Central Oregon.
