Proposed Assembly, Senate and Congressional Redistricting

These are the new legislative and congressional boundaries recommended by a panel appointed by the California Supreme Court.

The districts were designed to reflect population shifts reported in the 1990 Census.

Unless the Legislature and Gov. Pete Wilson agree on an alternative plan, the Supreme Court is expected to adopt these boundaries, possibly with some modifications, on Jan. 28.

Congressional redistricting would leave the new configured 24th District without an incumbent, which has triggered a scramble among both Ventura and Los Angeles County hopefuls. In the Senate, the changing boundaries exclude the home of incumbent Ed Davis of Valencia froma Ventura County district. That would leave District 19 with no incumbent. The new Assembly boundaries lump Oxnard and Thousand Oaks into a single district, a move thathas drawn criticism from Latino leaders who say that would dilute Latino voting strength. Senate District 18 also includes all of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. Assembly District 35 extends west to include most of Santa Barbara County. Senate District 19 also includes part of western Los Angeles County, including Santa Clarita and part of the city of Los Angeles. Assembly District 38 extends east and includes parts of Los Angeles County, Santa Clarita and the city of Los Angeles. Congressional District 24 extends into Los Angeles County, including Malibu, Hidden Hills, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village and part of Los Angeles city. Senate Districts
