Summary as introduced:
House of Delegates districts. Makes a technical adjustment in the House of Delegates line dividing Prince William County between the Thirteenth and Thirty-first Districts in order to have the House line coincide with the County's true precinct lines and eliminate a split precinct. The split Park Precinct named in the bill is a 2000 census "pseudo" or adjusted precinct that technically must be split in order to pick up the true precinct line. However, the County's precinct line does not follow a census block boundary. The County estimates that 260 population would shift from the Thirty-first to the Thirteenth District; the exact number cannot be determined because of the split census block. If the County's estimate is correct, both districts would remain within the plus or minus 2.0 percent population deviation used in the 2001 redistricting. This would be the only instance in which the state legislative district lines split a census block rather than follow block boundaries.
