Redistricting Part Deux

Back in September new legislative redistricting maps for the Colorado House and Senate were approved by the Colorado Reapportionment Commission. Many legislators objected to the new maps. They were challenged, and the Colorado Supreme Court ruled to reject the maps. Today a new set of maps have been approved. Redistricting is always a process fraught with emotion because redrawing the district lines can throw two current incumbents into a race for the same seat, or change the political dynamic of a district. An article detailing the latest drama can be found in today's Denver Post. The latest proposals and information about the reapportionment process can be found at www.colorado.gov/redistricting.
