House Republicans return to Oregon Capitol for redistricting


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Despite a threat to block new political maps Republican lawmakers returned to the Oregon state Capitol  — the final day for the Legislature to complete redistricting.

Enough GOP lawmakers returned to the House floor to achieve a quorum required to vote.

With the Republican reverse, it is likely Democrats will pass new district maps — including a sixth, U.S. House seat.

Congressional plans were sent to the redistricting committee on Monday morning to be formally adopted and the House is scheduled to reconvene at 1 p.m.
