Panel Endorses House Redistricting Plan

KSCB News - February 7, 2012 8:16 am

A Kansas House committee is signing off on a
proposal to redraw the chamber’s 125 districts to reflect changes
in the 2010 census.
The reapportionment committee took less than 10 minutes on
Monday to approve the map, endorsing it on a bipartisan, voice
vote.
There were no amendments offered to the plan, which would
collapse three current House districts and create three new ones in
the Kansas City metropolitan area.
One district each would be lost in southeast, southwest and
central Kansas, reflecting the population gains over the past
decade in Johnson and Wyandotte counties.
House Speaker Mike O’Neal, chairman of the redistricting
committee, said the decision was quicker than he anticipated, but
that it is possible that the full House could debate the proposal
yet this week.
