Legislative Redistricting

Kentucky Lawmakers Prefer Judges Not Do Redistricting

May 29, 2013

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- House Republicans who would take a shellacking under a redistricting plan proposed by Democrats insist they still want to avoid having federal judges redraw legislative boundaries in Kentucky.

The House's Democratic majority has a proposal ready that could force 11 House Republicans to run against each other next year. And Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear has said he plans to call lawmakers back to Frankfort for a special legislative session later this year to deal with the issue.
