Legislature mulls congressional redistricting

A Missouri House proposal would move Laclede County from the 4th to the 8th Congressional District

The Missouri General Assembly began a new session this week and redistricting is one of the top issues on the agenda The legislature is expected to act on new boundaries for Missouri’s eight congressional districts. Lawmakers will decide whether to stick with a map that gives Democrats two seats — one in Kansas City and one in St. Louis or a map that gives Democrats one seat. The map proposed by Rep. Dan Shaul, R-Imperia, would keep Missouri’s Congressional makeup the same, six Republicans and two Democrats. For more on this story see Saturday's LCR.
