The New Redistricting Maps
The New Redistricting Maps

AIR DATE: May 4, 2011

The state's legislative parties released their competing redistricting maps last week. So how did they slice things up? And what do those lines mean for real-life representation, and how will that affect our largest ethnic groups?

Here's a closeup of the GOP's proposal for 4 Congressional Districts.

The Democrats have the majority votes to pass their maps, but the Republican Governor Brian Sandoval also has veto power. Which maps are likely to pass, and what does that mean for Nevada? Listen as legislators explain their new maps and Latino leaders weigh in.
