STATE HOUSE — The Special Commission on Reapportionment will meet Wednesday at the State House to discuss prisoner apportionment as it pertains to the redistricting of House and Senate districts.

The meeting is scheduled Wednesday, Jan. 5, at 5 p.m. in room 35 in the basement of the State House. Masks are required inside the building.

The agenda includes a presentation and discussion on updated data on the impact of prisoner apportionment on House and Senate districts, as well as the commission’s options for reallocation. The commission will also discuss the inclusion of ACI data as well as its next steps.

Stephen R. Archambault (D-Dist. 22, Smithfield, North Providence, Johnston) and Rep. Robert D. Phillips (D-Dist. 51, Woonsocket, Cumberland).
