State Rep. Daniel Biss of Evanston would see more of his home town in his legislative district, and State Rep. Robyn Gabel’s of Evanston would see her share of the city shrink under the new legislative map being considered in Springfield.

Biss would pick up the central portion of north Evanston from Green Bay Road west to Ewing Avenue for his 17th District that’s now in Gabel’s 18th district.

Gabel would also lose a small slice of south Evanston, generally south of the CTA Yellow Line tracks, which would be shifted into the 14th District of Rep. Kelly Cassidy.
