(Missourinet) A state commission drawing new Missouri House districts plans to hold a public hearing today (Monday) to work out its differences.

The commission members agree on 112 of the 163 House districts. The disagreements are in the heavily populated areas of Jackson, Greene, Boone and St. Louis Counties. Today’s public hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Jefferson State Office Building in Jefferson City.

The Senate commission’s work has ended in a deadlock and the Senate map will be handled by a panel of judges.

Missouri redraws its Congressional and legislative districts every ten years. The proposed plan would give Republicans six likely Congressional seats and Democrats two seats.
