Dems’ plan splits both Canyon and Ada, uses I-84 as dividing line

Democratic Redistricting Commissioner Julie Kane said, “For discussion purposes, I would like to submit a plan as well. … I would call it the I-84 plan.” The Democratic plan has a deviation between the two congressional districts of plus or minus 53 people, .01 percent. “This plan divides two counties, Canyon and Ada,” Kane said. “We tried to follow the highway, which we felt was the biggest geographical marker in that area.” Kane, an attorney, noted that the Idaho constitutional provision against dividing counties applies to legislative districts - not to congressional districts. The Dems' plan pulls Owyhee County into District 2.
