In 1993, this district essentially became the 3rd district, while the 5th was redrawn to take in Bay CitySaginaw and the Thumb, the core of the old 8th district. After the 2000 census, this district was extended to Flint, previously the core of the 9th district. However, it was geographically and demographically the successor of the 9th.
