O’Malley Submits Legislative Redistricting Map

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley has sent Maryland’s state legislative redistricting map to the General Assembly.

O’Malley presented the map on Wednesday, the first day of the state’s 90-day legislative session.

The map creates 12 districts that are majority African-American. That’s an increase from 10 districts that the state’s highest court drew in 2002.

Lawmakers will have 45 days to approve the map or pass an alternative plan. If lawmakers don’t approve an alternative plan, the governor’s proposal becomes law.
