A revised timeline for drawing the boundaries of Oregon's six U.S. House districts — including the new district Oregon gained as a result of the 2020 Census — has been approved by the Oregon Senate.

Senate Bill 259 moved to the House on a 29-0 vote Thursday, May 13. It would align deadlines for congressional redistricting with the new deadlines that the Oregon Supreme Court set for redrawing legislative districts.
