The population boom over the course of the last decade in Loudoun County means the area could gain two state delegate districts and one state Senate district.
Democrat Stevens Miller is a Loudoun County supervisor, widely believed to be eyeing a run for state Senate, should a new district be created.
He says increased representation for the county and Northern Virginia means local delegates will be under more pressure to get things done.
"We've waited 10 years for this," Miller says, "and if they're as good as their word, Mr. Rust, Mr. May, Mr. Lemunyon, and Mr. Greason will all come through, and they'll bring us back our tax money."
But the population growth also means local districts will be shrinking in geographic area. Republican Del. Bob Marshall says he may no longer represent any part of Loudoun County when all is said and done.
"I'm losing areas, under one of these plans, where I've represented people for 20 years, and I've had precinct captains who've worked for me for for 20 years," Marshall says. "So a lot of things are changing there."
Lawmakers currently have one House proposal, two Senate proposals, and a plan put forth by the Governor's Redistricting Commission to consider.
