State lawmakers are heading home today and both parties are calling this session historic; with big reform packages on health care, education, and tax credits to name a few. State Senator Chris Telfer of Bend says lawmakers learned that they can work together: “We don't necessarily have 'my way or the highway' that we can actually compromise. We're not all going to get everything we want, but 85% of the time or more we work very well together and got some good legislation out. We got a whole new education direction and we've got some new health stuff, which we're going to struggle with, trying to figure out how we are going to reduce health care in this state. The cost; make it more accessible, better, healthier communities. Yeah, we've had some major directional changes." Republican leaders in the Senate say their main criticism of session is that more jobs bills didn't make it through the process.
