The first results of a bold political experiment will be released later this morning. The California Citizens Redistricting Commission will release draft versions of new legislative and congressional districts. The commission was formed after a voter approved proposition took the process out of the hands of the legislature. KQED's Sacramento bureau chief John Myers has been following the commission and its progress and he joins the Madeleine Brand Show with the latest details.
