SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Temporary Redistricting Advisory Commission unanimously supported the Legislature approving the proposed redistricting plan.

The proposal would put Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, and Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, in the same district and also put two Republicans in western Iowa — Steve King and Tom Latham — in the same district.

Cedar Rapids and Iowa City would no longer part of the same district.

The number of Congressional districts in Iowa would go from five to four.
