The U.S. Justice Department has approved Mississippi's redistricting plans for the state House and Senate.

Legislative leaders received word of the approval Friday.

The 122 House districts and 52 Senate districts had to be redrawn to reflect population shifts revealed by the 2010 Census.

Lawmakers approved new plans in the spring.
