Committee Assignment

 

Rep. McCabe is a member of the Legislative Apportionment Commission

Commission description: Maine law requires legislative district maps to be updated every 10 years based on census changes.  Historically, the criteria used by the commission in reviewing, and if necessary, redrawing district lines, is to keep districts “contiguous, compact, and when practicable, to prevent crossing town or county lines. Prior commissions have also historically favored closely maintaining existing districts. The apportionment commission is made up of 15 members, including an equal number of Republican and Democratic lawmakers, the political party chairs, and three public members, two of which are appointed by each party and a third that is agreed upon by both.
