Iowa lawmakers prepare for new districts

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Iowa lawmakers are preparing to draw up new legislative and congressional districts.

The task is done every 10 years.

It's sparked by the new data retrieved from the census.

Legislators must approve new district lines that reflect the change in population.

In Iowa, a non-partisan agency redraws boundaries and submits maps to the legislature for approval.

This year Iowa is expected to lose a congressional seat.
