ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Republicans are pushing forward a redistricting proposal projected to maintain a 33-23 majority for their party in the state Senate.
A Senate committee approved the map on a 9-4 party-line vote Friday.
Opponents say Republicans are moving too fast after only releasing the map late Tuesday.
The committee discussed a Democratic plan projected to yield a 31-25 Republican majority but did not vote on it.
A House committee on Friday started considering new districts for the 180 Georgia House members.
The General Assembly must redraw electoral districts at least once every decade to equalize populations.
