TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A Senate panel has endorsed a new congressional redistricting map that adjusts the lines of the four Kansas U.S. House seats.
The map was advanced Wednesday and could get a full Senate vote later this week. The proposal shifts the boundaries of the districts to reflect changes in the 2010 census.
Among the issues resolved in the map is where to put Riley County and the shape of the 4th District, which centers on Wichita and Sedgwick County.
Riley County would remain in the 2nd District. The county is home to Manhattan and Kansas State University.
The 4th District shifts east, picking up additional counties in southeastern Kansas but shedding south-central counties that would become part of the 1st District.
