Atlanta- Georgia may have a new plan for congressional districts in Georgia.
Republicans in the state Legislature agreed on a map that also has the blessing of Republicans in Washington.
Here's how it affects Southwest Georgia. In District 2, Representative Sanford Bishop would pick up the other end of Lowndes County on the west. The district then heads west to the Alabama line. On the north, it stretches up to southern Muscogee County.
District 3 will be a thin skinny district starting up at Newton County, then running south to Macon, through Warner Robins and ending in Colquitt County. District 3 will also include Tift, Turner, Irwin, Ben Hill, Wilcox Counties and part of Worth County.
The new map, different from two previous maps, is meant to clean up the partisan gerrymander approved in 2001, when Democrats ran state government. The plan, unveiled Friday morning, breezed through GOP-controlled committees in both chambers, with little debate.
The House committee didn't even talk about the new map before voting, and the whole thing was done in less than five minutes.
Republican leaders say they privately agreed on a version the night before.
