The controversial topic of redistricting continues making its way through the Missouri Statehouse.

The senate passes the house's proposed map by a close vote of 4 to 3 but not without senators and citizens voicing concerns over rural verses urban districts. Kay Hoflander is a famer near Kansas City and told lawmakers she's concerned the proposal would put her in the urban district of Kansas City. The committee chair says the close vote out of his committee means the bills could meet hard opposition on the senate floor.
