Redistricting Louisiana: The Challenges and Consequences for Acadiana
Tyron Picard CEO, The Picard Group and Glenn Koepp, Secretary of the Louisiana Senate
By law, the Louisiana legislature redraws political boundaries following the U.S. census every ten years. The outcome affects political clout—and the money and influence it brings—at every level of government. With the loss of one Congressional district in the state, this year’s reapportionment looms even larger than ever, and the boundary decisions will be made in a three-week special session that begins March 20. What might the future hold for Acadiana?
