The Supreme Court has agreed to take up the GOP's suit against the "Independent" Redistricting Commission. Here's a prediction. The Supreme Court rules 5-4 that "Legislature" means "Legislature" and says that it's the "Legislature" that draws the lines.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court said Thursday it will consider a challenge by Arizona Republicans to the state's congressional districting map.
Arizona voters created an independent redistricting commission in 2000 in an effort to take politics out of the process.
But the GOP-led state legislature complained in a lawsuit that the Constitution exclusively gives power to draw maps for congressional districts to elected state lawmakers.
