2-8

bounded and described as follows:

2-9

      (1) It is understood and intended that for the purpose of this section a line described as

2-10

running on, along, to or through any street (including road, avenue, lane, way, parkway,

2-11

expressway, divided highway, state route or interstate route, or trail), stream or river, is intended

2-12

to mean the center line of that street, stream or river, in all instances, unless it shall be otherwise

2-13

specified.

2-14

      (2) It is further understood and intended that for the purpose of this section, the districts

2-15

described in this section shall be composed of United States census geography (tracts and blocks),

2-16

as defined by the 2000 version of the "TIGER" files from the United States Census Bureau,

2-17

whose boundaries correspond to the below metes and bounds set forth in this section and which

2-18

are hereby made a part of this chapter. A listing of which census blocks are contained within each

2-19

district shall be deemed to be incorporated by reference.

2-20

      (3) (i) It is further understood and intended that for the purpose of this section, the

2-21

districts will be depicted on thirty-nine (39) maps, compiled by Election Data Services, Inc. for

2-22

each city and town, and hereinafter may be referred to as town maps.

2-23

      (ii) The secretary of state shall keep a copy of each set of the foregoing maps and a copy

2-24

of the census tract and block listing available for inspection during ordinary business hours at his

2-25

or her office. The secretary of state shall furnish each city and town a copy of the town map

2-26

covering that particular city or town within ten (10) days from the passage of this act. [February

2-27

20, 2002].

2-28

      (iii) For purposes of this title, references to "tract" or "CT" shall mean "census tract", as

2-29

that demographic unit is established by the United States Bureau of the Census for the 2000

2-30

census as described by maps and publications of the bureau. References to "block", "blocks",

2-31

"block groups", "enumeration district", or "enumeration districts", refer to those demographic

2-32

units as established by the United States Census Bureau for the 2000 census as described by maps

2-33

and publications of the bureau.

2-34

      (iv) Any reference to a "city or town", "city or town boundaries", or "city or town limits"

3-1

shall refer to the boundaries or limits of the particular city or town as they existed on January 1,

3-2

2000.

3-3

      (v) In the census tract and block listing, the first two (2) digits of a census description

3-4

shall refer to the state of Rhode Island (44), the next three (3) digits of a census description shall

3-5

refer to the county in which the district lies. Bristol county carries the code 001; Kent county

3-6

carries the code 003; Newport county carries the code 005; Providence county carries the code

3-7

007 and Washington county carries the code 009. The next six (6) digits refer to the census tract

3-8

within the county set forth in the description. The last four (4) digits refer to the census block

3-9

within the census tract. "TIGER" is an acronym for the computer readable geographic data base

3-10

that automates the mapping and related geographic activities required to support the United

3-11

States' Census Bureau's census and survey programs and stands for "Topologically Integrated

3-12

Geographic Encoding and Referencing."

3-13

      (vi) If any census tract, block, block group, or enumeration district is omitted, listed

3-14

more than once, or is only partially provided for, it is intended that the districts be defined in such

3-15

a manner as to not omit any area of Rhode Island from a district and to comply with the standard

3-16

of Articles VII and VIII of the Rhode Island Constitution requiring that districts be reasonably

3-17

equal. In order to carry out the intent of the general assembly as expressed in this section the

3-18

secretary of state, shall if necessary, undertake measures to insure compliance with this section.

3-19

      (vii) In the event of a discrepancy between the metes and bounds description, the

3-20

description of census tracts and blocks, and the maps which shall be on file with the secretary of

3-21

state, then the listing of census tracts and blocks shall take precedence and be controlling.

creation of districts containing substantially equal population. It is also intended that no senatorial

35-27

district shall include any of the area included within the description of any other senatorial

35-28

district. If the districts described in this act do not carry out the purposes thereof because of patent

35-29

unintentional omissions, duplications, overlapping area, erroneous nomenclature, faulty

35-30

description of boundary lines, street closings, changes in names of streets or of public places,

35-31

alteration of the courses of rivers or streams, the filling in of lands under water or changes in

35-32

shorelines due to accretion, the secretary of state is hereby authorized and empowered to correct

35-33

such omissions, overlaps, erroneous nomenclature, or other defects in the description of districts

35-34

so as to accomplish the purposes and objectives of this act. In making such corrections, the

36-1

secretary of state shall be guided by the following standards:

36-2

     (1) gaps in the description of any district shall be completed in a manner which results in

36-3

a total description of the district in manner consonant with the description of adjacent districts;

36-4

     (2) areas included within the descriptions of more than one (1) district shall be allocated

36-5

to the district having the lowest population;

36-6

     (3) areas not included within the descriptions of any district shall be allocated to the

36-7

adjacent district having the lowest population.

36-8

     SECTION 7. This act shall take effect upon passage; provided, however that the

36-9

provisions hereof shall first be effective in connection with elections to be held on or subsequent

36-10

to the first day of September, 2004, and for the purpose of greater clarity, the first election under

36-11

the provisions of this act for senator from each of the twelve (12) senatorial districts hereby

36-12

revised shall be held on the Tuesday next after the first Monday in November, 2004, and the first

36-13

primary election under the provisions of this act for nomination of candidates for senator from

36-14

each of said senatorial districts shall be held on the second Tuesday after the first Monday in

36-15

September, 2004; provided, however, that if any provision of this act or the application of such

36-16

provision to any person or under any circumstances shall be held unconstitutional or otherwise

36-17

invalid or inoperative by a decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, or if any action

36-18

performed or to be performed under any provision of this act is restrained or enjoined by any

36-19

court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions of this act shall not be deemed to be

36-20

impaired or affected thereby but shall be deemed to remain in full force and effect. Any primary

36-21

or special election held prior to the first day of September, 2004, shall be conducted under the

36-22

laws as they existed prior to the passage of this act.
