Rosenmeier to Discuss Reapportionment

Former Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch will join a panel at Central Lakes College in Brainerd Wednesday discussing Reapportionment. 

Every ten years, following the release of results of the Census, states must reapportion legislative and congressional districts to ensure each citizen has equal and fair representation. On February 21st, a special judicial panel will prescribe the legislative and congressional lines that will divide Minnesota politically for the next decade.

The panel will also include Peter S. Wattson, a veteran Minnesota Senate Legal Counsel and former General Counsel to Governor Mark Dayton; Rep. Sarah Anderson, Chair of the House Committee on Redistricting; and Gregg Peppin, former legislative analyst on the 2001 legislative redistricting legislation. Taylor Stevenson, Vice President of the Rosenemier Center Board of Directors will moderate the forum.

The Rosenmeier Center for State and Local Government at Central Lakes College in Brainerd will sponsor the event at the Chalberg Theater at CLC from 7 to 9 p.m., Wednesday, January 25.
