Members of the commission to reapportion state House and Senate districts will begin touring Colorado to take comment on their initial maps of proposed state House and Senate districts.
The commission will be in Fort Collins on Thursday, August 11 at 6 p.m. on the Colorado State University campus,
Behavioral Sciences Building (410 Pitkin Street, Room 105).
The Colorado Reapportionment Commission will host 25 events throughout Colorado in August and early September. A final map will be drawn following the public hearings and submitted to the State Supreme Court for approval by the October 7 deadline.
The Commission is established by law every ten years following the United States Census. It consists of 11 members appointed by minority and majority leadership in the Senate, House, the Governor and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
The State Constitution directs lawmakers on how to draw House and Senate districts based on the results of the census. Since May 12, the Commission has been holding public hearings in an effort to develop initial maps.
