Before their next meeting on Wednesday, May 4th, 2011, please and politely ask the Utah Redistricting Committee members listed below to amend the third redistricting principle from 2001 that reads “Districts will be single member districts” as follows: “Congressional districts will be single member districts. Non-congressional districts may be either single member or multi-seat districts.”

This change would allow committee members, other legislators, and members of the public the option of proposing multi-seat districts for the state house of representatives, state senate, and state school board.
