UPDATE: Supervisors adopt redistricting plan

Los Angeles County supervisors adopted a redistricting plan this week that makes the fewest changes to existing districts to reflect 2010 Census numbers.

Adopted late Tuesday following hours of testimony, the plan dubbed A3 Amended drew criticism from many speakers representing the Latino community in Los Angeles County.

It passed on a 4-1 vote, with Supervisor Gloria Molina dissenting.

Plan A3 Amended was approved after it was amended to correct minor boundary anomalies. A four-vote majority was required for passage.

The other two plans considered Tuesday - plans T1 and S2 - promised to create at least two districts that many believed would yield a Latino majority vote in elections.

None of the plans being considered Tuesday substantially affected the Santa Clarita Valley, which remains in Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich's district.

Five supervisors are elected to represent Los Angeles County's 9.8 million residents.
