The Senate Reapportionment Committee just updated its proposals to redraw the boundary lines of Congressional and State Senate districts. These are the panel's first revisions since it submitted initial proposals on Nov. 28.
The newly updated Congressional map tweaks the lines of the 3rd District, a minority access seat that includes parts of Jacksonville and Orlando and is currently held by Democratic U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown. The revised map also swaps some land between the 12th and 13th Congressional districts in Manatee, Charlotte and Sarasota counties.
The biggest change to the Senate map is that all but a few districts have been renumbered. There are also some adjustments to boundary lines in Lake County, impacting what were Districts 9 & 20 on the old map (Districts 10 & 11 on the new one).
The panel will discuss its Proposed Committee Substitutes to Senate Bills 1174 and 1176 on Jan. 11.
