The Judges say:

The Appellate Apportionment Commission has filed a revised state Senate redistricting plan and map with the Secretary of State. The revised plan was filed within the 90-day period allowed by the Constitution and replaces the plan filed on November 30, 2011. A majority of the Commission opted to revise the plan upon further consideration of a constitutional provision regarding multi-district counties, even though that provision may not apply to redistricting maps drawn by the appellate judges.

The Senate redistricting plan has an overall difference in population of 7.79% between its largest and smallest districts. The plan has four African-American majority districts.

Summary maps and demographic reports describing the new Senate districts are posted on the website: http://oa.mo.gov/bp/redistricting. Additional detailed maps and census descriptions filed with Secretary of State will also soon be available on the website.
