The latest in Connecticut

Jan. 18, 2022

Control of Connecticut’s congressional redistricting process is now in the hands of the state Supreme Court, after a bipartisan panel composed of state lawmakers missed both its initial Nov. 30 deadline and its extended Dec. 21 deadline to approve a new map. On Jan. 18, Nathaniel Persily, a special master appointed by the state Supreme Court, submitted his proposed map to the court. (That’s in addition to 11 other maps considered by the panel’s Republican and Democratic members, two of which were submitted to Persily for consideration in early January.) This is not Persily’s first rodeo — he also drew Connecticut’s map in the last redistricting cycle after the bipartisan commission failed to come to an agreement.

Persily’s recommended plan (and an alternative plan he submitted) would change the current map very little. Under both proposals, Connecticut would continue to have three Democratic-leaning seats and two competitive seats. Two of the Democratic-leaning seats would get a little less blue under Persily’s recommended plan, but only slightly so.

Now that Persily’s proposal is public, people can submit proposed changes until Jan. 24. The justices will then hold a public hearing on Jan. 27.
