At last, Minnesotans will see legislative Republicans plans for the state's congressional districts for the next 10 years.

The House redistricting committee plans to discuss the yet-to-be released maps on Tuesday at 10:15 am.

The House passed its plan for legislative districts on Monday, heard the bill in committee Tuesday and passed the plan off the House floor on a 69-58 vote Friday.

Gov. Mark Dayton, a Democrat, has repeatedly said that any election bill would need to have broad bipartisan support to win his signature. The redistricting plans released do not.

If the governor and lawmakers cannot agree on a new plan for the state's political boundaries, based on new Census numbers, a court will end up drawing the plan as it has in the past.
