The Osceola County Commission has adopted a resolution designed to ensure that the county's redistricting advisory committee resembles as much as possible the population at large.
Similarly, Orange County School Board chairman Bill Sublette has vowed that minority groups will be represented on the board's redistricting advisory committee in numbers proportionate to their student population.
These actions are taking place in the wake of a controversy in Orange County earlier this month over low Hispanic representation on its redistricting advisory committee.
