Inland Valley Daily Bulletin Discusses Rose Institute Study on Redistricting

The Tuesday Inland Valley Daily Bulletin discussed the impact the 2010 Census will have on redistricting in 2011 by looking at the Rose Institute’s study “The 2010 Census: Congressional Reapportionment,” and quoting the Rose Institute’s Douglas Johnson and Tony Quinn, a member of the Rose Institute’s Board of Governors.

The population boom in the Inland Empire and southeast portion of the state means L.A. County also could, demographically speaking, lose a congressional seat, according to the study’s author, Douglas Johnson of the Rose Institute of State and Local Government at Claremont McKenna College.

Politically though, that lost seat is not likely to happen, according to Tony Quinn, co-author of the California Target Book.
