MONTGOMERY – Alabama’s legislative leadership recently announced a plan to tackle Congressional and school board redistricting during the 2011 Regular Session to avoid reconvening the Legislature for a costly Special Session to address the issue.

Legislators are set to launch a two-week series of public hearings across the state in May to hear voters’ input on how the Legislature should redraw district lines to reflect population changes from new 2010 Census data.
