U.S. Congressional Districts – Legislative. Standing Joint Congressional Redistricting Committee composed of members of both the House and Senate. The Redistricting Committee is to draw up redistricting plans no less than 30 days before the Legislature meets for the first time after the decennial census is published. State agencies are to help the Committee as necessary. Statutes are silent about what happens if the Legislature fails to pass apportionment during this time. The Governor can veto legislation concerning congressional apportionment.
State Legislative Districts – Legislative/Backup Commission. If the Legislature fails to pass the
legislation by 60 days after the end of the second regular session following the decennial census,
a 5 member commission will reapportion the state. The 5 member commission consists of the
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court as chairman, the Attorney General, the Secretary of State, the
speaker of the House of Representatives and the president pro tempore of the Senate. They
immediately convene and within 180 days of the adjournment of such special apportionment
session apportion the Legislature, and it’s final upon filing with the office of the Secretary of
State. The Governor cannot veto legislation concerning legislative apportionment.
