House Releases Proposed New District Map (May 06, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma lawmakers have redrawn the state's 101 House districts to reflect a growing population and shifts from urban centers and rural areas into the suburbs.

Maps of the proposed new districts unveiled Friday on the House website show no incumbent lawmakers will be forced to run against each other in 2012.

The proposed new boundaries will be considered by a House committee next week, and House Speaker Kris Steele says he doesn't expect the map to change.

Senate leaders say they expect their proposal will be unveiled early next week.

Oklahoma is required to redraw legislative and congressional district lines every 10 years to reflect population changes determined by the U.S. Census Bureau. The 2000 Census recorded Oklahoma's population at 3.45 million. In 2010, it was 3.75 million.
