Legislative maps seem to be moving forward.
House and Senate Democrats have held public hearings about the map-making process where little new information has been learned. That leaves the data behind the re-mapping process to be questioned by many groups. Griselda Vega Samuel with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund says she wants the process to be more transparent.
American Community Survey data was used to draw the new maps – not the complete US Census data that has been used in the past.
