Committee plans Dec. 20 meeting in Chickasha to talk redistricting

CHICKASHA — A steering committee out to reform the legislative districts in Oklahoma will meet at 7 p.m. Dec. 20 on the campus of the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma House of Representatives' Redistricting Steering Committee will gather in the Davis Hall Amphitheatre, 17th St. and Grand Ave.                                                                                                       

The committee will play host to several meetings across the state in December and January, before the 2011 redistricting process begins, to encourage public input in the redistricting process. 

By law, the Legislature must redraw its district and congressional boundaries to reflect changes in population every 10 years immediately following the decennial Census. 

The meetings are open to anyone who would like to attend.

Davis Hall is in the middle of the campus oval, please enter through the glass doors just under the giant mural with historic faces. 

 If you are interested in attending a meeting, but cannot attend this particular one, please call the House Redistricting Office at (405) 557-7468 to find out about other meetings scheduled in other parts of the state.

The House Redistricting Steering Committee intends to guide the development of a fair and reasonable plan that adheres to all legal guidelines for equal representation. 

These meetings give Oklahomans a chance to voice their input and concerns before the process of redrawing legislative and congressional lines begins.
