Rep. Loebsack statement on redistricting

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

Eastern Iowa legislators are reacting to the first proposed map that lays out changes to congressional districts.  It's a result of the most recent Census numbers, which show a drop in Iowa's population.  So the state will be going from five representatives in the US House to just four.

Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement about the new map.

"In Iowa, we are fortunate to have a nonpartisan redistricting process that puts Iowans and Iowa's communities first, ahead of politics. For more than four years, I have been honored to represent much of southeastern Iowa – in Iowa's Second Congressional district.  Understanding that the redistricting process is ongoing, as the map stands now, I would plan to continue to represent the southeastern district of Iowa that stretches from I-35 to Iowa City, the Quad Cities and to the southeastern most tip of Keokuk.  I have been honored to represent these communities in the past and look forward to representing them in the future."
