Redistricting Committee Meetings Underway

By the end of this week, the Redistricting Committee and each of its subcommittees will have met twice each, covering several topics. Last week, committee members heard a presentation regarding the legal fundamentals of federal and state redistricting laws, and then another presentation regarding Florida? 2010 Census data and demographics. This week, committee members are diving deeper into several topic areas, including public participation and outreach, legislative procedures, and Florida? constitutional requirements.

There are several ways to learn more about these briefings and meetings:
