Redistricting challengers say they’re not asking court to enact their own district plan

Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs, who submitted his own proposed redistricting plan as part of a challenge to the Idaho's new legislative district plan, L-87, said, "I don't think you can adopt my plan, and I'm not asking the court to do that." He told Idaho's Supreme Court justices his plan is "a template to make the argument," saying, "It does demonstrate that the necessity of cutting 11 counties 14 times cannot be proven, because you can do a better job."
