Alabama House OKs new congressional, legislative districts
Alabama's seven congressional districts will have their lines redrawn after the House of Representatives approved the plans.
The final vote of approval came out 65-38, with 10 Republicans joining Democrats to oppose the new boundaries. Some representatives raised concerns that the process was rushed and that the proposed lines do not reflect the diversity of the state, packing Democratic supporters into a single congressional district. Republicans who were opposed to the plan voiced issues with particular changes.
The plans now move to be voted on by the Alabama Senate.
