Idaho's Citizen Commission for Reapportionment has convened this morning. “You have an arduous task ahead of you,” Secretary of State Ben Ysursa told the six new commissioners. “I think you're all up to it. The 90 days starts counting today.” The bipartisan panel has 90 days to come up with new district lines for Idaho congressional and legislative districts. To start it off this morning, Ysursa administered the oath of office to the six commissioners: Republicans Evan Frasure of Pocatello, Lou Esposito of Boise, and Lorna Finman of Rathdrum. The group convened in the Capitol Auditorium, where it's scheduled for a full day of business. “Like it not, you're on for 90 days,” Ysursa told the commissioners.
