The clock is ticking to redraw legislative boundaries following the 2020 census. This week California’s redistricting commission released a preliminary map of what the state’s congressional districts could look like. If finalized the new map could make it a lot more difficult for some incumbent representatives like Devin Nunes to hold on to their seats. To learn more about this process and its timeline Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock checked in with the non-profit California Common Cause. She spoke with the organization’s executive director Jonathan Mehta Stein and Central Valley redistricting organizer Luis Huerta-Silva.

Kathleen Schock is the host of Valley Edition. In the show, Kathleen and the Valley Public Radio news team explore issues that matter to the residents of Central California through engaging conversations and in-depth reporting.
