Gov. Kitzhaber summoned Oregon leaders from both parties to work out a state budget deal.

"I think hard lines were tested earlier in the session and they just didn't help," said Senate Minority Leader Ted Ferrioli, R-John Day. "Democrats and Republicans are going to have to come to the middle," and there are signs of that happening, he said.

House Speaker Tina Kotek, D-Portland, participated by phone.
