Indiana Senate plans public hearings on redistricting
By Kyle Maichle
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana: Senate President Pro Tempore David Long is planning to schedule hearings throughout Indiana to gather input from the public on redistricting. Indiana is expecting to receive its population data from the US Census Bureau in the second week of February 2011. The data will be used to redraw State House and Senate districts along with Indiana's nine congressional districts.
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." Republican leaders in the General Assembly intend to create fair districts and keep communities of interest together. The Senate will announce a hearing schedule in the later part of the 2011 legislative session.
