Eastern Wyoming Redistricting Still Undecided

CHEYENNE (AP) - Redistricting boundaries of Wyoming's eastern third remain undecided in the latest tentative plan approved by a legislative panel.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/oCIsqg) that the 13-member Joint Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Committee approved a draft plan Friday for most of the state.

Significant changes include Dubois and Jeffery City in the same legislative district and a new district almost entirely within Jackson city limits.

Natrona County and Sheridan County would see few significant changes under the draft plan.

The committee will meet again December 4th - 6th. Members are examining changes to Campbell County, which will get an extra state representative because of population increases between 2000 and 2010. The concern is that the extra state representative comes at the expense of other, smaller northeastern Wyoming counties.
