Redistricting tour announced
ST. PAUL -- The House Redistricting Committee, chaired by State Rep. Sarah Anderson (R-Plymouth), announced a statewide tour to gather public input from community members and local officials.
The first meeting will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday at the Lyon County Courthouse, Marshall.
"We are committed to a fair, open, and honest redistricting process that reflects the demographic changes across Minnesota over the past 10 years while allowing communities of interest the best opportunity to be represented," said Anderson in a press release.
"The tour will also help committee members and local officials analyze how our redistricting time frame impacts cities and counties as they redraw their local lines," Anderson continued. "These public hearings are essential in our commitment to give Minnesotans a fair and transparent redistricting process."
