2002 Legislative Reapportionment



House reapportionment in 2002 was a two-step process:  An initial redistricting plan, Act 85 (H.749), divided the state into districts which had between one and fifteen representatives. A second division of the larger districts into the constitutionally manadated one- or two-member districts was then appended to the Senate reapportionment bill, S.300.

During conference negotiations between the House and Senate, it became necessary (for technical reasons) to append ALL of S.300, including both House and Senate reapportionment plans, to House Bill H.761, the Professional Regulation bill, which was passed as Act 151, An Act Relating to Professional Regulation and Redistricting the House and Senate, completing the 2002 legislative reapportionment.

    * Several discrepencies have been identified between the Washington-3 map as shown and the district bounderies as defined in Act 151:

    1. According to statute, the northern most boundary between the districts is "the center of Hall Street to the intersection of Elm Street", instead of Hall Street, the maps identify the boundary to be the center of Park Street, approximately 400 feet to the east.
    2. According to statute, the southern most boundary between the districts is "along the western back lot line of Allen Street to the Barre Town boundary", instead of the "western back lot line," the maps identify the boundary to be the center of Allen Street.

    In all cases, the text of the statute should be considered authoritative.
