Redistricting Committee Updates

The Redistricting Committee met today to drill down further into Florida’s redistricting process.  The Committee first heard remarks regarding:

  • The jurisdiction of the Committee and the subcommittees, and the responsibilities of Committee members;
  • Opportunities for public input and participation in the redistricting process; and
  • House rules and procedures for redistricting.

Additionally, the Committee heard testimony from the House’s special counsel for reapportionment, regarding Florida’s state constitutional provisions on redistricting.  Specifically, counsel helped the Committee members examine the recently approved Amendments 5 and 6 (Article III, Sections 21 and 20 of the Florida Constitution).

The Committee also got a tour of the beta version of the MyDistrictBuilder application.  Throughout the week, each of the redistricting subcommittees will also hear the same presentations in their respective meetings.

The Redistricting Committee and its subcommittees will also go through an hour-long tutorial on how to use MyDistrictBuilder in their meetings next week.

If you want to watch a replay of ths meeting or any House redistricting meetings, the Florida Channel’s redistricting video archive page is now live at http://thefloridachannel.org/featured-stories/redistricting/.
