New state Senate map updates local districts
Saturday, December 10, 2011
The six-judge panel charged with drawing new House and Senate district boundaries for the Missouri Legislature on Friday filed a revised Senate plan with Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, replacing the map released Nov. 30.
Only the Senate map was changed, and the revised map makes no changes in Mid-Missouri.
The new 6th District still includes Cole, Moniteau, Osage, Maries, Miller, Morgan and Cooper counties.
Callaway County still is moved to a new 7th District, along with Audrain, Montgomery, Lincoln, Pike and Ralls counties.
Boone County remains the anchor of the 19th District, with Howard County replacing Randolph County in the two-county district.
And the new 16th Senate District still includes Camden, Laclede, Pulaski and Phelps counties.
But the new map made a number of changes in the Kansas City and Springfield areas, and in one south-central Missouri district that includes the Arkansas border.
