Idaho's redistricting commission has unanimously adopted a new legislative district plan, L-87, that splits 11 counties and has a population deviation of less than 10 percent. The plan will be posted on the commission's website shortly. “They all drew it together,” said redistricting staffer Keith Bybee. “There was buy-in from all six of them; they spent time working in teams.” The redistricters will begin looking at congressional district lines this afternoon, and will meet again Monday morning at 9:30.
