Residents will have their last chance tomorrow to say how they thinkcongressional districts should be carved up under the state's new redistricting plan.

The Governor's Redistricting Advisory Committee will conduct a public hearing in the Joint Hearing Room of the Legislative Services Building, 90 State Circle, at 4 and 7 p.m.

Anyone wishing to submit redistricting plans should obtain guidelines by calling Carolyn Knowles or Elise Bridges at (301)225-4550.

Anyone wishing to reserve a time to testify should call(800) 688-7494. Priority will be given to those who reserve a time.
