This week, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber is expected to sign new District maps for state lawmakers. Legislative leaders hailed the plan as a historic bipartisan agreement because the Legislature hasn't successfully redrawn Legislative Districts since 1981. But not everyone is happy. Republican State Representative Jason Conger of Bend says the maps were drawn to provide an advantage to give an advantage to incumbent Legislators and the Democrat Party:  "And the registration will become more blue. It will go from a 2.5% Democrat advantage currently to about a 6% Democrat advantage after re-apportionment." The state is required to draw new boundaries every 10 years to go along with population changes revealed in the census. Some Republicans said they would support the compromise only to keep the task from being handed to the Democratic Secretary of State.
