Missouri redistricting evidence submitted
Thursday, February 2, 2012
All that’s left is the arguing.
After a national Republican expert testified Wednesday that Missouri’s new congressional districts are “compact” as required by the state’s Constitution, and a St. Louis-based professor testified the new map hurts the St. Louis region, five lawyers get their final chance this morning to tell Cole County Circuit Judge Dan Green why he should rule for or against Missouri’s new congressional map.
Lawmakers approved the new boundaries last year, then had to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto to put the new map into law.
