Redistricting Commission adopts final Congressional map
Michigan’s Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission has officially picked the state’s Congressional boundaries for the next decade.
Eight commissioners—including the necessary 2-2-2 split of Republicans, Independents and Democrats—chose the proposed map Tuesday.
The boundaries set up three main battleground districts for upcoming congressional elections.
That includes one combining Grand Rapids and Muskegon, a Lansing-centered one, and a district near Detroit featuring Warren, Sterling Heights and Rochester Hills.
The commission’s final maps are likely to face legal challenge.
