Recent reports indicate that Americans view their politicians with a lot more disdain, most likely thanks to the Washington impasse on the budget. Oregon Senator Chris Telfer says she's heard things a bit differently regarding the Oregon Legislature: “For the most part, I think the Oregon Legislature, this last session, pretty much played nice in the sandbox. There was a lot of compromise, a lot of thoughtful compromise and some good legislation got passed." Telfer says they did have some stalemate towards the end of the session and that's when the lawmakers began to make deals to get their bills passed. Telfer, along with all of the other Central Oregon legislators will be speaking at the 2011 Legislative Wrap Up next Tuesday in Redmond.
