3 Significant Points from September 19 Redistricting Committees

Monday, September 19 – The Florida House’s Redistricting Committee and its Subcommittees began the process of reviewing and discussing the public input gathered at this summer’s 26 community meetings and input obtained via proposed maps and other written suggestions from Florida residents.  Three significant points from Monday’s meetings:

1. Redistricting Committee Chairman Will Weatherford suggested that the public submit any new ideas (via MyDistrictBuilder, in writing, via social media, etc.) for redistricting maps before November 1.  Public comment will still be welcomed and needed throughout the redistricting process.  However, public input in November and thereafter will have to be utilized in response to legislative proposals that are already working their way through the process.

2. Weatherford set a goal for the House, Senate and Congressional Redistricting Subcommittees to each approve of at least three complete options for their respective maps.  This means that the Redistricting Committee will have for its consideration at least three redistricting maps for Congress, three for the State House and three for the State Senate.

3. The Redistricting Committee rolled out public input summary documents for Northwest Florida, Northeast and North Central Florida, Central Florida and Southeast Florida.  These documents are available via www.floridaredistricting.org.  Summary documents for Southwest Florida and citizen-proposed statewide redistricting maps will be made available by early October.
