Commissioner Dick Der Ham representing Senate republicans complained thursday that there has t been More give and take by the four voting commissioners so far. But he and the others continue edging toward consensus in Many parts of the state. Although no votes were taken and commissioners said All maps remain tentative until the entire statewide plan is adopted the panel appears close on legislative boundaries for Eastern Washington the Seattle area Eastern King county and parts of Southwest Washington. Derham agreed to make the 15th legislative District the one that snakes Westward through the Columbia Gorge As other commissioners want rather than the 8th District As he had proposed.

Erik Poulsen a Seattle. Is expected to give up one of the District s House seats to take a Senate appointment leaving the door open for Cody to run for an open seat next fall. Giese said the main Points of Contention now seem to be Olympia Everett and the Northern boundaries of the 7th and 8th congressional districts. Democrats badly want Olympia left in the 22nd legislative District and the 3rd congressional District but republicans still put it in the 6th congressional District and put part of the area in other legislative districts. The decision will affect which District Grays Harbor is in. Democrats also want Everett left in the 2nd congressional District since it is a Power base for freshman incumbent rep. Rick Larsen. Republicans place All or part of it in the 1st District. The two parties also Haven t agreed on the Northern boundaries to the Seattle area 7th and 8th congressional districts.
