Here's a link to my full story at spokesman.com on today's first meeting of the state's bipartisan citizen redistricting commission; here, new redistricting commissioner Lorna Finman of Rathdrum, right, visits with state GOP Executive Director Jonathan Parker, left, during a break in today's meeting. Tonight at 7, the commission will hold its first public hearing in the Capitol Auditorium. Anyone who wishes to can offer input on how to draw new legislative and congressional district lines in Idaho, and the hearing will be streamed live here. Another public hearing is scheduled for tomorrow night in Caldwell, from 7-9 p.m. at Caldwell High School; the commission also plans to schedule public hearings around the state in the coming weeks.
