People across Oregon will most likely get a chance next week to see the new Legislative Maps proposed for the state. And Central Oregon had so much growth during the past 10 years that new legislative maps could be very different than the current district lines. State Senator Chris Telfer is the co-chair of the Senate Redistricting Committee: "We are exchanging maps and we're going to start talking about the redistricting maps next week seeing if can come to a consensus, so on May 12th there are at least two maps that are going to go out to the public for feedback."   They hope to put those District Maps up on a state website on Thursday, the 12th. The maps are re-drawn every ten years after census data is collected. Last time, in 2001 Secretary of State Bill Bradbury was in charge of drawing the lines after Gov. Kitzhaber vetoed the proposal. This time, Telfer says Kitzhaber has said he will probably sign off on the new maps.
