Oregon Legislative negotiators Tuesday announced a landmark bipartisan deal to redraw the State's Legislative Boundaries to account for population changes over the last decade.  If the agreement is ratified by the Legislature and signed into law by Governor John Kitzhaber, it will represent the first time since 1981 that lawmakers have been able to draft a successful redistricting plan instead of handing the issue to the Secretary of State. Four legislators have come up with a plan that will redraw the State's Legislative boundaries. Achieving the plan is a major accomplishment according to Senator Chris Telfer, Republican from Bend. 

It’s been 60 years since the Legislature has been able to draw legislative boundaries.  “This is a fair and bipartisan plan that I believe can provide Oregonians with quality representation over the next 10 years.” The new maps take into account population changes. The largest areas of growth are Clackamas and Washington Counties and Bend. The Legislature has to agree on the plan before the Governor can sign off on it.
