Des Moines, Iowa (AP) — Democrat Cindy Axne and Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks have been pushed into the same parliamentary district under the latest constituency change map.
The proposal, announced Thursday by the Independent Legislative Services Agency, will also keep Johnson and Lynn’s Democratic counties in separate districts, unlike previous plans rejected by the Republicans earlier in the month.
The Iowa General Assembly will meet in a special session next Thursday to review the map. If the second map set is rejected, LSA will draw the third map set within 35 days. This could be corrected by having the majority of Republicans lead the process.
