Finally: A WA congressional map

OLYMPIA — A subcommittee of the Washington Redistricting Commission released its proposed map for the state's new congressional district.

For Eastern Washington's 5th District sees the least change, losing some of its western most precincts, but otherwise looking about like it does now.

The new 10th District is carved primarily out of Thurston and Pierce counties. The 8th District spans the Cascades, giving the East Side of Washington 2 1/2 districts, at least on paper. The population base, however, is eastern King County.

Take a look at the map here.

The commission is cutting it close. It still needs an Eastern Washington legislative map, must take public comment, make any adjustments and get at least three of the four commissioners' “yea” vote by midnight Jan. 1.  Meeting will continue later today.
