Redistricting Connecticut

Nov 30, 2011

Wednesday is the deadline for state lawmakers to draw up a new legislative map. Every ten years, the boundaries are adjusted based on the census and it is a process that can often be contentious. The redistricting commission is responsible for balancing out the state House and Senate districts in addition to the five Congressional districts. While progress has been made since the previous deadline was extended, the commission is unlikely to complete its task at hand.

Joining us by phone is the CT Mirror's Mark Pazniokas who has been following this process. You can read his report below:

"Negotiators for Democrats and Republicans have agreed on a new legislative map for the 151 state House districts, while their state Senate counterparts worked late Monday night in hopes of beating a constitutional deadline of Wednesday."
