10-7-11: Redistricting Rorschachhttp://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wypr/local-wypr-989269.mp3]
Governor O’Malley’s Redistricting Advisory Committee released its Congressional redistricting map on Tuesday, after about a month of public hearings. Every ten years, Maryland’s Congressional and state legislative districts get reshaped to account for population changes registered in the U.S. Census. The next step is a special session of the General Assembly, later this month.
