Districting & Apportionment Commission July Update

Districting & Apportionment Commission, Legislative Services Division

Districting Panel Accepting Public Comment in Advance of August Meeting

The Districting and Apportionment Commission will meet in Helena Aug. 13-17 to discuss draft legislative redistricting plans and to adopt a tentative 100-district map of Montana House districts.

In November, the commission will pair the House districts to create “nested” Senate districts and will hold another public hearing on those Senate pairings. A final public hearing on the complete plan will be held in December, just before the commission must submit the plan to the 2013 Legislature for a constitutionally mandated review by legislators.

After receiving the plan, the Legislature will have 30 days to provide feedback to the commission. The commission, however, is not required to adopt any changes suggested by the Legislature.
