ANDY YATES, CAMPAIGN OFFICIAL FOR PANTANOFOR CONGRESS, SENT THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION TO USA DOT COM ON THURS. MORNING JUNE 16:








Verne:


I went to the redistricting committee meeting yesterday (June 15) and they laid out the schedule for releasing maps through adoption.  Either this Friday (June 17th) or Monday (June 20th) they are going to release the maps for the Voting Rights (majority-minority) districts then they are going to have a public hearing on those maps only on Thursday, June 23rd.

 On Friday July 1st, they are going to release all the rest of the district maps then that next week they will hold a public hearing on those.  July 13th, 14th and 15th the redistricting committee will convene in Raleigh to debate the maps and discuss the input from the public hearings. Then on Sunday night July 17th the General Assembly will reconvene in Raleigh to debate and vote on the maps.

The plan is for the General Assembly to be in session through Thursday July 21st as needed to approve the maps.  If maps aren't approved by the 21st then additional times will be scheduled for the General Assembly to debate and vote on maps.
