More Testimony on Redistricting

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A bipartisan commission is meeting in Jefferson City to hear public reaction to a proposed new map of Missouri state Senate districts.

The 10-member panel endorsed a tentative new map last month of redrawn boundaries for the 34 Senate districts. The districts are being adjusted to reflect population changes from the 2010 census.

Redistricting commissioners are required to accept public comments about the map for 15 days before they can give it final approval. Thursday’s session was scheduled for 10:30 a.m. At least two St. Louis Republicans have condemned the map, and a federal lawsuit was filed last week challenging the redrawn districts.
