Redistricters back at work in small groups…

Today, Idaho's new citizen redistricting commission is back at work, but its public session lasted only moments. "We're going to do much like we did yesterday," Co-Chair Dolores Crow announced - work in small groups on possible district lines for various parts of the state. "We probably won't come back here." The full commission will get together for lunch - but the commissioners can't talk about redistricting while they lunch, or they'd be violating the open meeting law. It's something this new commission has made a point of doing, for personal bonding; they talk about kids and get to know each other. The bipartisan panel's co-chairs both say they're making progress; they're scheduled to continue meeting all week.
