Congressional districts to be redrawn

Atlanta- Committee's in both the House and Senate have signed off on a new map for the state's 13 congressional districts. The proposal to redraw the map came about after the GOP won a majority in the house in November.

Republican's claim the district lines drawn in 2001 are sprawling and need to be corrected in some areas.

Congressman Sanford Bishop says, he's seen three different maps and, "After looking at all of the maps, there are no places in the newly proposed district that he hasn't represented before."

The full House could vote on the map this week.
