(Radio Iowa) – The second set of maps proposing new boundaries for Iowa’s four congressional districts and all state legislative districts will be released after 10 this (Thursday) morning. The non-partisan Legislative Services Agency will deliver the redistricting plan to legislators first, then release it to the public via the Iowa General Assembly’s website.

On October 5th, the 32 Republicans in the Iowa Senate rejected Plan 1 for redistricting and directed the Legislative Services Agency to develop new maps with legislative districts that were closer in total population. Governor Reynolds has set October 28th as the date for a special session so lawmakers can vote on this second set of maps.
