      South Carolina legislative seats changing

      A state Senate subcommittee has begun the process of redrawing state House, Senate and congressional districts in South Carolina. The committee held its first organizational meeting Wednesday and set up a schedule of public hearings on the redistricting process that is required by federal law every ten years.

      Due to population growth over the past decade, South Carolina will gain a seventh U.S. House seat and there's been speculation the new district could be centered on the Grand Strand. However, the Spartanburg area could also gain a seat.

      The public hearings will all begin at 6:30 p.m. on the following dates and locations:

      March 28, Myrtle Beach, Horry-Georgetown Technical College

      March 29, Aiken

      March 30, Rock Hill

      March 31, Greenville

      April 4, Beaufort

      April 5, Columbia

      April 6, Florence, Florence-Darlington Technical College

      April 7, Charleston
