DES MOINES, Iowa – The second draft of proposed redistricting maps for Iowa’s congressional and legislative districts has been released.
The non-partisan Legislative Services Agency gave legislative leaders access to the maps Thursday at 10:00 a.m. and they were posted online shortly after.
Take a look at the differences between the current maps to the first proposal that was rejected and the newest proposal.

Iowa House Districts
Iowa Senate Districts
The proposed changes would affect two of Iowa’s current Congressional delegates. Representatives Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Ashley Hinson, both Republicans, would no longer live in the districts they represent if the new changes are approved.
Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver, a Republican from Ankeny, issued a statement following the release of the second draft of the maps.
I appreciate the work LSA has done to quickly attempt to address the concerns the Senate expressed with Plan One. Plan Two is a regular part of the process outlined in Iowa law. I look forward to reviewing the map and its adherence to the criteria established in Iowa law.Senate Majority Leader Jack Whitver
Lawmakers will consider the second version of the redistricting maps during a special session next Thursday.
