The new redistricting map suggestions for Oregon have been released to the public for review. Wednesday,  the State committee in charge of redistricting posted the proposals on the State Legislature's website. Committee member Senator Chris Telfer of Bend says people can go online, take a look at the ideas, and submit their feedback. But don't get too married to one map: "There is no way that either of them will be the final map. We've started to negotiate, started to talk. I don't want anyone to get overly excited about, yeah, this is a good map or this is a bad map. This is a starting point." During the next two weeks, the State is holding public hearings to get testimony on the proposed Legislative and Congressional redistricting plans. Those meetings are in Salem, so they are also accepting written comments by mail, email and fax.   The email address is: oregon.redistricting@state.us.or.us or.
