HELENA – The state’s redistricting commission will meet next month for its first talks on how it will redraw Montana’s legislative maps.

The five members of the Montana Districting and Apportionment Commission will meet on July 12 at the state Capitol in Helena.

They are tasked with using 2010 Census data to reapportion the 100 state House districts and 50 state Senate districts.

The commission will set up the process for submitting public comment and a schedule of public hearings.

The plans will be submitted to the 2013 Legislature for approval and will be effective for the 2014 election cycle.

The meeting will be held at 2 p.m. in room 137 of the Capitol.
