|House District 16 now majority minority|
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sixth in a series of articles showcasing the changes in state legislative district lines as this fall's elections near. The Legislature tackled redistricting legislative districts in a special legislative session earlier this year. Congressional and legislative district lines were redrawn to reflect population changes revealed in the 2010 Census.
By Scott Rogers
For years, House District 16 was known as north Monroe's district in the House of Representatives.
The special legislative session on redistricting earlier this year changed all of that.
Thanks to redistricting, District 16 now is a majority-minority district. It includes areas in and near the Lakeshore area as well as parts of north Monroe, based near Lamy Lane.
District 16 also now stretches north into Morehouse Parish where it takes in the incorporated areas of Bastrop, which is majority minority. That area was part of District 14 prior to redistricting.
