Oregon lawmakers must come up with new political lines for the state legislature and the U.S. House. But they’re struggling amid partisan squabbling and another state Capitol COVID-19 outbreak.

On this week’s episode of “OPB Politics Now,” political reporters Dirk VanderHart and Sam Stites break down a wild week, dig into House Speaker Tina Kotek’s decision to back out of a deal to give Republicans more input in redistricting and discuss why this is so important to the future of state political control.
