Senate redistricting plan keeps Owensboro in 2nd District, and keeps all of Pulaski County in 5th
A state Senate committee has approved a Congressional redistricting plan that differs greatly from the one passed in the House.
The Senate State and Local Government voted 7 to 4 along party lines Wednesday for the plan that keeps Owensboro in the 2nd District and Ashland in the 4th. The Senate plan also keeps all of Pulaski County in the 5th District. The Democratic House map had divided Pulaski County, home of GOP Congressman Hal Rogers of Somerset.
