Redistricting Panel Concludes Public Hearings on Draft Plans

In May, the Districting and Apportionment Commission finished the public-hearing phase on the five draft redistricting plans with meetings in Havre, Wolf Point, Crow Agency, Billings, and Miles City. Members of the public turned out in force at these meeting to testify on the plans. The commission held 14 public hearings around Montana in March, April, and May.

Audio files of the hearings will be posted at http://leg.mt.gov/districting on the "Meetings" page. Copies of all written comments received by the commission are available on the "Public Comment" page. Citizens have sent in hundreds of letters, emails, and faxes expressing their opinions about their communities and plans.

Although the initial public hearings are complete, the commission continues to take public comment about the draft plans. Send written comments to Districting and Apportionment Commission, Legislative Services Division, PO Box 201706, Helena, MT 59620-1706; by email to districting@mt.gov; or by fax to 406-444-3036.
