Missouri House Approves Congressional Redistricting Map

MO Capitol

The Missouri House this week passed a congressional redistricting map that would likely maintain the state’s current congressional delegation. The map, which passed 86-67, would keep 6 Republican seats and 2 Democratic seats. Members of both parties offered amendments to the map, but the primary focus of debate was amendments that would have changed the map to a 7-1 Republican advantage. All of the proposed amendments ultimately failed. 

The map now goes to the Senate for debate, where it is expected to face opposition from some Republicans. Some members of the Senate Conservative Caucus have already indicated support for a 7-1 map, and have claimed that the current map more closely resembles a 5-3 map instead of 6-2.
