It’s not a common event to have the entire Central Oregon legislative delegation in one place at one time. The Tri-County 2011 Legislative Wrap-Up Forum is taking place Tuesday in Redmond. State Senator Chris Telfer of Bend says because there will be seven lawmakers on hand; each will get about two to three minutes to talk about what was accomplished in the last session. "A lot of it's just going to be Q & A, and I think most of us legislators also want to hear peoples' concerns and moving forward into February’s session. But I think a lot of it's going to be Q & A and so a lot of information comes out of that type of process."  Telfer says she expects a lot of questions about the budget, the education reforms and some of the healthcare reforms. Expected to attend are Chris Telfer, Ted Ferrioli, Doug Whitsett, Jason Conger, Gene Whisnant, Mike McLane and John Huffman. The Legislative Forum is at Highland Baptist Church in Redmond on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. They are asking you to bring nonperishable food or a monetary donation to support community efforts.
