Colo. parties plan rival redistricting hearings

DENVER — Colorado Democrats and Republicans are putting on rival public hearings to ask people about new congressional districts.

A Democratic Senate committee and Republican House committee both planned hearings this afternoon to ask voters about new boundaries for Colorado’s seven congressional districts. The parties are at a standstill on how to draw the lines.

The Legislature has until next week to redraw lines as required after every census. Democrats are pushing to promote competitive districts in which neither party has a clear advantage. Republicans prefer district lines that are similar to existing ones.

The redistricting process may end up in court if the parties cannot agree.
