The Rose Institute is pleased to announce our next conference will be held October 15th, 2009.
The all-day conference willÂ cover the financial and representational issues involved in the 2010 Census and 2011 Congressional, Legislative, and local redistricting of California.
Titled â€œRedistricting, The 2010 Census, and Your Budget: Changes and Challenges for California Governments,â€ the conference will be held on the campus of Claremont McKenna College in Claremont. Elected officials, City and general managers, general counsel, financial officers and elections officials will all find unique and valuable insights from the Conference proceedings.
Also, aÂ new Rose Institute study will be released at this conference. This report will analyze population shifts among California’s Congressional Districts andÂ provide a preview ofÂ Californiaâ€™s 2011 Congressional redistricting, including analysisÂ which Congressional Districts are going to need to shift the most in 2011 as a result of under- and over-population.
UPDATE: TheÂ Rose Institute is pleased to announce that theÂ California State Association of Counties (CSAC) and the California League of CitiesÂ agreed to co-sponsor this conference. These organizations agree with the Institute on the importance of these issues for California’s local governments, both to ensure effective representation of local concerns in Sacramento and Washington, and to understand the importance to local government financesÂ of a full and complete Census.
