Redistricting, The 2010 Census, and Your Budget: Changes and Challenges for California Governments
LUNCH 12:15 p.m., LECTURE 12:45 p.m.

This fall, the Rose Institute of State and Local Government, in partnership with the League of California Cities, California State Association of Counties, and the California Contract Cities Association, will host a forum on the legal, financial and representational issues associated with the 2010 Census and 2011 state and local government redistrictings:

The financial opportunities of the 2010 Census

The financial and legal risks and costs under the new California Voting Rights Act

Local governments’ role and influence under California’s new rules for legislative redistricting

Preparing for redistricting after the 2010 Census

Planning for a complete Census Count

Elected officials, general managers, general counsel, financial officers and elections officials will all find unique and valuable insights from the Conference proceedings.

In addition, a new Rose Institute study will be released at this conference, previewing California’s 2011 Congressional redistricting and its politics. It will look at which Congressional Districts are likely to be under- and over-populated and predict the resulting shifts in lines, influence, and power.

This conference is co-sponsored by Nielsen, Merksamer, Parrinello, Mueller, and Naylor
