Oklahoman: Oklahoma legislative redistricting maps headed to Gov. Kevin Stitt for approval

Carmen Forman, Oklahoman

Redistricting plans for Oklahoma's 101 House districts and 48 Senate districts are headed to Gov. Kevin Stitt's desk for approval. 

With nearly unanimous support, the Oklahoma House and Senate gave final approval to two bills detailing how Oklahoma's legislative districts should look for the next decade. 

Stitt is expected to sign House Bill 1198 and Senate Bill 1066

Under the proposals, the Oklahoma City metropolitan area would gain one state House seat and one state Senate seat due to population growth. 

However, the maps approved by the Oklahoma Legislature on Wednesday may not be the final maps that will take effect next year. Lawmakers may alter some legislative districts in a special legislative session this fall.
