Legislature Wraps Up Community Redistricting Hearings

Rep. Brian King (D-Salt Lake City)

(KCPW News) For many weeks now, lawmakers on the Utah Legislature’s Redistricting Committee have gotten an earful from communities across the state about how the new legislative and congressional boundaries should be drawn. Some rural cities and towns say ‘give us our own district,’ others say they want to be included with the more urban Wasatch Front. So now that the community hearings are over, how will the legislature take these conflicting ideas and actually draw the boundaries? KCPW’s Jeff Robinson spoke with Democratic Representative Brian King of Salt Lake City, who sits on the redistricting committee.
