Connecticut’s Congressional delegation releases statement on Redistricting process as committee gets ready to blow past its deadline.

“As CT’s redistricting efforts move forward, we, the Members of the House of Representatives representing CT, want to make clear that we believe CT does not need major changes to the existing congressional district lines given the modest changes in the most recent census.

Where changes are necessary, we believe they should abide by the principle of community interest and respect the integrity of current district lines as much as possible, with a strong emphasis on keeping communities unified within congressional districts.

It is our hope that these simple guidelines are reflected in the ultimate plan that emerges.”
