Redistricting Finished, Challenged

New, 20 comments

The new California Congressional, state legislative, and Board of Equalization maps have been finalized--the first set to have been drafted by the bipartisan Citizens Redistricting Commission. And...there's already a referendum drive to overturn at least some of them. Republicans are challenging the state senate boundaries and are considering challenging the congressional ones; the California Republican Chairman called them "unfair if not unconstitutional." Meanwhile, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund is thinking about taking the maps to federal court because they believe there aren't enough majority-Latino districts.
