Arkansas redistricting meeting to be held in LR

The Arkansas Board of Apportionment's staff is holding a hearing in Little Rock to receive input on how to redraw legislative districts based on the latest Census figures.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Board of Apportionment's staff is holding a hearing in Little Rock to receive input on how to redraw legislative districts based on the latest Census figures.

The board planned to hold its public hearing Tuesday night at Dickinson Hall on the University of Arkansas at Little Rock campus. The hearing is the latest in a series of public meetings on proposals to redraw the state's House and Senate districts.

The board is made up of Gov. Mike Beebe, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel and Secretary of State Mark Martin. McDaniel said last week that he wants the Board of Apportionment to vote on new House and Senate districts on July 29 and says the public should see all maps available at least 10 days earlier.
