Colo. lawmakers to meet on redistricting

DENVER — Colorado lawmakers will hold their first meeting to talk about congressional redistricting.

The issue is one of the thorniest lawmakers will take on this year. To tackle the issue, legislative leaders formed a 10-member committee of five Republicans and five Democrats who will begin meeting today.

Lawmakers are hoping to avoid another redistricting fiasco like the one 10 years ago that ended up in court.

Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, says he hopes lawmakers end up with competitive districts in all the state’s seven congressional districts.

However, that’s unlikely because of population shifts over the past 10 years that would require major changes to the state’s political map.
