NASHVILLE (AP) – The House has passed a new version of the state Senate redistricting bill that corrects an omission of Tipton County from the Senate plan.

The chamber voted 75-19 on Wednesday to make the fix to the bill originally passed last week, but later found to have dropped language referring to the county in the redrawn district of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris of Collierville.

House Democrats said the mistake was due to the haste with which the redistricting measures were shepherded through the legislative process.

The Senate was expected to agree with the House changes as early as Thursday.
