September 24, 2021 –The Line opinion panel discusses the final weeks of the Citizen Redistricting Committee’s work to develop recommended maps for the state’s political boundaries and congressional districts. The commission released proposed revisions last week, and now enters a whirlwind tour across the state with 8 public meetings in 11 days. The maps won’t be binding for lawmakers, and the group talks about whether the commission’s maps will carry the weight reformers hope they do.
