After reconvening this afternoon, Idaho's redistricting commission approved minutes from earlier meetings and set meeting dates for August and September, including next Monday, Tuesday starting in the afternoon, and next Wednesday, with possible meetings also on Friday or Saturday. The panel won't meet the following week, but if it's still working, will be back Aug. 15-17. It also identified meeting dates in late August and into September, right up to its Sept. 4 deadline, which falls on a Sunday; commissioners said they hope to be done long before then, but would meet that day if necessary. GOP Commissioner Lou Esposito said he was anxious “to get back to work” on his legislative redistricting plan, which he plans to present on Monday, so the panel adjourned until 10 a.m. Monday.
