A class at Columbia Law School on redistricting has produced the first known redistricting plan for Georgia. The actual redistricting process in the state legislature is not expected to produce plans until late summer 2011.
Georgia has received an additional, 14th Congressional District (CD), which due to population growth will have to be inserted in the northern Metro area. The student map, by Matthew Galeotti, reflects this very well.
