Congressional districts to change in state
Our View - Feb 24, 2011
Louisiana’s Legislature undoubtedly will have a difficult assignment when it meets in March and April to define the state’s new congressional districts. The 2010 Census population figures reduce the number of congressmen our state is entitled to from seven to six.
St. Charles Parish is part of two congressional districts, the First represented by Rep. Steve Scalise and the Third represented by Rep. Jeff Landry. And there is talk about combining the Third District which runs along the eastern coast with the Seventh District on the western end of the coast to form one district along the entire coast. In that case, Landry would be in direct competition with Rep. Charles Boustany of Lafayette for re-election.
