CONCORD —Three Belknap County townships will from one of New Hampshire's two congressional district to the other if a redistricting plan passed Wednesday by the Seante becomes law.

Associated Press reported that the plan was supported by both Rep. Frank Guinta (District 1) and Rep. Charlie Bass (District 2) and it passed quickly, with no debate.

Under the compromise apparently reached by the two congressmen, Center Harbor, Deerfield and Northwood would leave Guinta's District One for Bass's District Two. In exchange, Bass surrenders Sanbornton, Tilton and Campton.

The districts are adjusted every 10 years after the census.

The plan now goes to the House.
