Twin Falls County plans court challenge to new redistricting plan

Twin Falls County plans to sue over Idaho's new legislative redistricting plan, the Times-News reports today; you can read reporter Ben Botkin's article here. County Prosecutor Grant Loebs told the newspaper the county is unhappy with the new district lines. "They made three districts out of it, two of which are dominated by population centers outside of Twin Falls (County)," Loebs said. The plan puts the city of Twin Falls into one district, and splits the rural portions of the county into two other districts along with areas outside the county. Under the Idaho Constitution, challenges to redistricting plans go directly to the Idaho Supreme Court.
