Eye On Boise

And the new redistricters are at work…

The new redistricting commission's agenda for today includes going over policies and procedures, a briefing from the Attorney General's office, and this afternoon, a presentation from the former redistricting commissioners. The new commission also is scheduled to get an introduction to the Maptitude online map-drawing software, and to discuss its meeting schedule, including possible hearings around the state. It's also tentatively scheduled for all-day Maptitude training both Thursday and Friday.

New Commissioner Randy Hansen, when asked about the legislative and congressional district plans that the former commissioners agreed to unanimously last Friday after they'd officially been disbanded, said, “We'll have the opportunity over the next couple weeks to look at that really seriously.” He said he's hopeful that the new commission can reach agreement in a matter of weeks. “That's my hope, that we can come together,” he said.
