Redistricting 2011

Republican members of the Missouri congressional delegation assembled in April 2011 to throw their weight behind changes to the two existing congressional redistricting maps.

The chairmen of the state legislature’s redistricting committees, Rep. John Diehl, Sen. Scott Rupp, House Speaker Steven Tilley, House Majority Floor Leader Rep. Tim Jones, Senate President Pro Tem Robert Mayer, and Majority Floor Leader Sen. Tom Dempsey. Senators Jason Crowell and Brad Lager were seen entering party headquarters, but did not stay long.

Congress members Jo Ann Emerson, Blaine Luetkemeyer, Todd Akin, Vicky Hartzler and Sam Graves were said to have joined the conversation in person or via phone link.

The redistricting stalemate between the Missouri House and Senate has spurred debate and Crowell's warning of a filibuster against any attempt to pass the House version of the redistricting map.

The controversy concentrates on the way the two maps divide St. Charles and Jefferson Counties. The House map splits St. Charles County in two and Jefferson County three ways. The Senate map features a compact St. Charles County, and only two divisions in Jefferson County.[3]
