INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana: Senate President Pro Tempore David Long is planning to schedule hearings throughout Indiana to gather input from the public on redistricting.[1] Indiana is expecting to receive its population data from the US Census Bureau in the second week of February 2011.[1] The data will be used to redraw State House and Senate districts along with Indiana's nine congressional districts.[1]

Long told the Courier-Journal that: "Sometime in the beginning of March we can begin the real work of hunkering down and begin to prepare our plans."[1] Republican leaders in the General Assembly intend to create fair districts and keep communities of interest together.[1] The Senate will announce a hearing schedule in the later part of the 2011 legislative session.[1]
