Montana Districting & Apportionment Commission

Proposals to pair state House districts to create state Senate districts are now available on the website of the Montana Districting and Apportionment Commission. Individual commissioners submitted the proposals last week. The full commission will consider and vote upon the proposals at the commission's Friday, November 30th meeting.

The commissioners also made proposals for how they would assign "holdover senators" to new Senate districts. Holdover senators in redistricting are senators who were elected to a four-year term in 2012. Those senators will serve the first two years of their terms in the existing state Senate districts and the final two years in districts created by the commission.

More information, including an agenda for the meeting, is available at the commission's website, www.leg.mt.gov/districting. The commission will provide time at the November 30 meeting for public comments on the proposed Senate pairings before it votes.

Comments may also be sent in writing using the contact information below. All comments become part of the commission's permanent public record and will be copied and distributed to each of the five commissioners.
