Del. Redistricting Heads Down The Home Stretch

Baker Petroleum

The complicated task of redrawing legislative districts every ten years following the U.S. Census is nearing its close in Delaware.

The State Senate and the State House are meeting today (Monday) in a special session devoted to redistricting. The Senate is scheduled to go into session at noon, and the House would follow at 2:00 p.m.

A bill that details the redrawn maps of House and Senate districts (SB 199) was introduced Friday and will be considered. If it passes, Governor John Carney would sign it into law.

Following several public hearings and comments, several changes were made to the first set of draft maps released in October.
