MassTLC CEO Testifies Before Special Joint Committee on Redistricting

MassTLC CEO Tom Hopcroft testified before the special joint committee on redistricting at a hearing at Framingham State University. The Committee is charged with studying and proposing "a new division of the Commonwealth into 9 Congressional districts under the United States Constitution, 40 Senatorial and 8 Councillor districts under Section 2 of Article CI of the Amendments to the Constitution, as amended, and 160 Representative districts under section 1 of said Article CI." Based on population change data from the census, redistricting is done every ten years.
