|Standing by one's word not what it used to be|
It's far too early to say with any certainty what the state's congressional districts will look like when's it all said and done in the special session on redistricting.
We'll have a clearer picture by the end of the week. Maybe.
Begun just over a week ago, the special session was called to tackle redistricting in light of the results of the 2010 Census. The Census told us the state's population grew at a snail's pace over the past 10 years. Louisiana's population grew so poorly that the state will lose one congressional district to accommodate states that experienced significant population growth from 2000-2010.
Remember, there are 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. Those seats must be reapportioned every 10 years to reflect shifts in population across the country. To put it plainly, states that grew over the previous 10-year period are awarded more seats in the U.S. House to represent them over the next 10 years. States that didn't grow significantly or lost population must give up representation at the capitol in Washington.
