Minn. Redistricting Panel To Hold Public Hearings

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A special panel on redistricting appointed by Minnesota’s Supreme Court chief justice will hold a series of public meetings to give interested people and groups a chance to be heard on the once-a-decade process of redrawing the state political map.

A scheduling order issued Monday by the panel says the hearings will be held Oct. 6 through Oct. 14 at locations to be determined later.

Redistricting is carried out every 10 years after the U.S. census to redraw the lines of legislative and congressional districts in order to reflect population shifts.
