House Redistricting Committee Moving Forward on New Maps

The Missouri Independent reported this week that the bipartisan commission tasked with drawing the map for Missouri's 163 House districts is "more than 50 percent" in agreement. The House Independent Bipartisan Citizens Commission - composed of 10 Democrats and 10 Republicans - met for more than three hours on Monday to compare their draft proposals. Members of the commission stated that there was general consensus as to rural districts, but that they needed to review each side's proposal for more urban areas. 

The commission must have 14 members agree on a map by the December 23 deadline. If they cannot reach an agreement, the responsibility of approving a map goes to a panel of appeals court judges chosen by the Missouri Supreme Court.
