After only a few days of the special session of the Maryland General Assembly, the redrawn lines of Congressional District Map have passed in both the Senate and the House. Technical changes to the map are expected to pass another Senate vote today before moving on for final approval from Governor O’Malley.
Most of the changes are to the sixth district, currently held by Republican Congressman Roscoe G. Bartlett, and to Montgomery County. The redrawn lines do have some opposition from Republicans and minorities, who feel that their representation is threatened. For more information, check out the Baltimore Sun article.
