The Redistricting Board has three maps up on their website today (click documents) - Hickel 1, Hickel 2, and Hickel 3.  Presumably the staff was asked to come up with some options for the meeting that begins at 1pm.    You can click on the maps below to enlarge them.  Lots of details are missing.  But we can see that they've gone back to something that looks like the old District 6 [big yellow 37] that loops from near Valdez up along the Canadian border around Fairbanks.  That's got to be one of the Native districts and it looks like they set up another one to connect to it in Southeast [35.]  The other Native districts would be 40, 39, 38 and 36.  The other maps seem to be variations of this.
 




















The question will be how big each district is and whether they're compact, contiguous, and socio-economically integrated.  And how they affect incumbents. 

We should find out more at the meeting.  You can also listen in online 

Live Stream: alaskalegislature.tv    at 1pm.

Here's the agenda:

CALL TO ORDER ROLL 
CALL APPROVAL OF AGENDA
 EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S REPORT 
LEGAL REVIEW OF SUPREME COURT DECISION
EXECUTIVE SESSION 
STAFF PRESENTATION OF DRAFT “HICKEL” PLANS 
ADJOURNMENT
