Hawaii Reapportionment Commission starts work

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 08:18 a.m. HST, Apr 17, 2011

A panel tasked with redrawing Hawaii election district lines has started its work and will come up with a draft plan by late July.

The 2011 Reapportionment Commission held its first meeting this week.

Districts are reshaped once a decade to reflect population shifts determined by the U.S. Census.

Government accountability group Common Cause reports that Hawaii Republican Party Executive Director Dylan Nonaka was elected temporary chair of the commission while it searches for a permanent head.

Half of the eight-member commission was appointed by Democrats, and the other half by Republicans, and they will together vote on choosing their leader.

A final reapportionment plan must be completed by mid-September, according to Common Cause.
