Virginia: McAuliffe plans Aug. 17 special session to redraw congressional map | Richmond Times-Dispatch
Gov. Terry McAuliffe is calling an Aug. 17 special session of the General Assembly to comply with a court order that legislators redraw the state’s congressional map by Sept. 1. “This special session is an opportunity to work together to fix Virginia’s congressional district lines so that politicians do not have a greater say in who represents Virginians than voters do,” McAuliffe said in a statement Tuesday. “I look forward to working in a bipartisan way to meet the court’s mandate to pass a fair and equitable map by the court’s deadline.”Full Article: McAuliffe plans Aug. 17 special session to redraw congressional map - Richmond Times-Dispatch: Virginia Politics.
