U.S. Rep. Frank J. Mrvan is encouraging Northwest Indiana high school seniors and college students interested in attending a U.S. military academy to apply at his office for a congressional nomination.
The process of redrawing the boundaries of the state's nine congressional districts, 100 Indiana House districts, and 50 Senate districts to adjust for population shifts over the past 10 years is complete.
House Democrats criticized the redistricting plans for maintaining Republican dominance of Indiana government and for giving Hoosiers very little time to review the new maps before rushing them into law.
"We were either chasing population or dragging it," said state Rep. Greg Steuerwald. "But you can only drag population so far, and that's why you'll notice a lot of new districts in areas with growing populations."
