Dugger: Appellate Apportionment Commission Releases New Legislative Districts

Every ten years, following the census, Missouri must redraw its 34 Senate and 163 House districts. This tedious process began several months ago with the appointment of two bi-partisan commissions tasked with the responsibility of creating new districts that reflected the change in Missouri’s population since 2000. Unfortunately, neither the Senate Apportionment Commission nor the House Apportionment Commission was able to agree on new lines and the undertaking was passed on to a panel of six appellate court judges.

Late last week the Appellate Apportionment Commission released the new maps bringing several drastic changes to the layout of Missouri’s legislative districts. For me personally, the 144th District which I now represent will become 141st District. My new district will contain all of Wright County and the eastern half of Webster County. Douglas County will become part of the 155th District which also includes Ozark County and the most of Taney County. Texas County will be entirely in the new 142nd District along with southern parts of Pulaski County and Phelps County.

These newly drawn districts will not actually become reality until Representatives are elected to serve those new legislative districts in the November 2012 elections. In the meantime, I remain committed to serving the people of the 144th House District. It has and will remain to be an honor to serve you in the Missouri House of Representatives.

God Bless.
