Bill Subjects



The California Constitution creates the Citizens Redistricting Commission, which is required to adjust the boundary lines of the congressional, State Senatorial, Assembly, and State Board of Equalization districts in the year following the year in which the national census is taken under the direction of Congress at the beginning of each decade. The California Constitution requires the commission to be created no later than December 31 in each year ending in the number zero and requires the commission to approve 4 final maps by August 15 in each year ending in the number one. Existing statutory law also requires the commission, no later than July 1 in each year ending in the number one, to publicly display the first preliminary statewide maps for public comment. This measure would authorize the commission, for 2021 only, to extend the deadlines for final map approval and public display of preliminary maps if the United States Census Bureau fails to provide the commission with necessary state redistricting population data within one year after the decennial census date. The measure would not allow the commission to extend the deadline for final map approval beyond December 15, 2021.
