    I’d like to see the legislature’s proposed maps for redistricting so that I can comment on them online, not partial maps or maps made by citizens that might or might not be adapted. I cannot understand why the redistricting committee has not proposed a map yet for comment. There is no reason for a delay. California, a much larger state with many redistricting needs has already published its new maps so there is plenty of time for the legal process for approval. The delay by the Florida legislature smacks of politicking which is expressly prohibited by the new constitutional amendments. Show us the maps!

    • The Florida House of Representatives will be using the maps listed above, the written suggestions and public testimony at the 26 public hearings as its starting maps. So you are looking at the House’s maps. It’s been stressed by a number of redistricting reform advocates, including the Brennan Center for Justice and even the authors and framers of Florida’s recently adopted Amendments 5 and 6, that the redistricting process should consider citizen input both before and after initial maps are drawn. The maps above are one form of citizen input that the Florida House is considering, and it is critical to passing legally compliant and appropriate maps.
