Monday, the Colorado Independent Redistricting Commission announced that the Colorado Supreme Court has approved the final state house and state senate plans.

“Coloradans voted for Amendment Y and Z and the commissioners and staff delivered.” said Jessika Shipley, staff director of the Colorado Independent Redistricting Commission. “These maps reflect how the state is growing and evolving, and the variety of voices we heard from communities over the last year.”

The decision can be viewed at Probation/Supreme_Court/Opinions/2021/21SA305.pdf.

According to the Colorado Constitution, the plans are to be filed with the Secretary of State no later than Dec. 29, 2021.

Now that the congressional and legislative maps are adopted by the Court, the 2021 Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissions have fulfilled their duties to the people of Colorado and say their work is done.
