Governor Snyder Signs Redistricting Law

LANSING (WKZO) -- Legislation that redraws the boundaries of Michigan's congressional and legislative districts is signed into law by the Governor.

The new maps are needed in order to reflect the population shifts according to the 2010 census. In signing the redistricting legislation Governor Snyder says that the fact that Michigan was the only state in the country to lose population in the last decade shows why there is a need to fundamentally reinvent the state in order to grow.

At its peak, Michigan had 19 Congressional seats and it now has 15. Next year as a result of the population loss,  Michigan's number of seats drops to 14.
