Panel regroups on election map
The 11-member Colorado Reapportionment Commission will meet behind closed doors today to discuss the Colorado Supreme Court’s rejection earlier this week of its proposed new legislative district maps.
The high court rejected the maps on grounds the commission didn’t take county lines into enough consideration when redrawing the state’s 35 Senate and 65 House districts.
Today’s meeting is to be between the commission and its attorneys to determine what legal guidelines it now must follow from the high court, which gave the panel until Dec. 6 to resubmit revised maps.
After today’s meeting, the commission will meet Monday and Wednesday in public to make those changes. Both meetings will be in the Colorado Capitol Building in Denver. While no public hearings are anticipated, the commission will accept public comments on whatever new maps it devises.
