Georgia Redistricting Update

A Georgia Senate committee has approved a revised map for state Senate districts. One change under the new map is that Savannah senator Eric Johnson's district, which currently sprawls across more than a dozen southeast Georgia counties,  would become a compact suburban Savannah area district.

Last week, a three-judge federal panel overturned Georgia's redistricting plans, giving the legislature until March 1 to redraw its maps. The new map goes to the full Senate on Friday for a vote.
