The United Congress of Community and Religious Organizations on Monday will propose new boundaries for state legislative districts aimed at increasing minority representation in Springfield.

The group said its proposed redistricting map would create 35 districts in which minorities have a majority of the population. That would be an increase of five from the current map of 118 state House and 59 state Senate districts.
