  •  The redistricting commission (0+ / 0-)

    had released a number of draft maps but I remember hearing that that was the one they decided on.

    And indeed, for once my memory is right:

    •  Gotcha, they just sent it to the legislature (0+ / 0-)
      Co-chair Ucci stressed that the evening’s votes weren’t the last word.

      “We are a reporting commission to the General Assembly,” he explained during the hearing. “Our report will then be submitted in January. It will then be up to the House and Senate to take these up as legislation to go through the normal legislative process. The plan would have to pass both sides of the House and Senate and then ultimately be determined by the governor.”

      Of course it really isn't that important since there are only three states left where significant changes from the current maps or current draft maps are anything more than remote: Florida, New York, and Virginia
