Indiana redistricting maps to be unveiled Monday

April 10, 2011

Indiana lawmakers are expected on Monday to release to the public the new political maps proposed for the state's 150 legislative and nine congressional districts.

Republicans have complete control of the once-a-decade redistricting process this year with their state House and Senate majorities.

The proposed districts are to be unveiled during separate meetings Monday of the Senate and House election committees.

The legislators heading up the redistricting process have been tight-lipped about the plans, saying that few lawmakers will see the full maps much ahead of their public release. Republican leaders expect to have the new districts approved by the Legislature's April 29 adjournment deadline.

One possible political target of redistricting is Democratic Congressman Joe Donnelly, who narrowly won re-election last year to his northern Indiana seat.
