Redistricting this Year Will Be Even Handed


It’s time to re-map Oregon’s Congressional and State Legislative Districts.  Lawmakers say an equally divided House will lend to a very fair process. District lines are re-drawn every ten years. Hillsboro Republican Shawn Lindsay says in past decades the process has been tipped blue or red, depending on the make up of the Legislature. “One decade is Republicans have had a pretty good lop-side and Democrats have had a pretty good lop-side and we’ve been able to control each other by the collar. This year it’s different: 30-30 House.” Lindsay and other committee members hope it will reduce challenges after the Legislature finished their work. A series of public hearings will be held around the state.
