A Preliminary Look at Control and Strategy for Congressional Redistricting: Who Controls the Process?

Public Mapping provides a nice table describing how the process works and who may or may not control it. I'm going to use their information and modify it here, noting how things went down in the 2000 redistricting and updating for the actual (not quite final) results from yesterday's election.
