ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – A Maryland panel has voted to recommend a new congressional map for state lawmakers to consider in a special session. Six state legislators voted along party lines with four Democrats supporting the proposed map and two Republicans opposing it. Democrats say the recommendation creates more compact and contiguous districts for Maryland’s eight U.S. House seats. The two Republicans, who opposed the recommended map, say it doesn’t go far enough to address gerrymandering that currently exists. The map will be submitted to the Maryland General Assembly, which is scheduled to hold a special session to consider it next month.
