“NC’s congressional district redraw starts Tuesday”


The nuts and bolts of yet another North Carolina redistricting will start getting laid out Tuesday when legislative leaders huddle on the state’s court-challenged congressional maps.
House and Senate leadership announced the committee late Monday, appointing the usual suspects to oversee the process. The interim committee on redistricting plans to meet at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Room 544 of the Legislative Office Building.
The meeting is open to the public.
A three-judge panel last week ordered the state not to proceed with the 2020 elections under the current congressional map, saying it may soon be declared an illegal partisan gerrymander under the North Carolina constitution. The judges didn’t order the General Assembly to redraw the map yet, but lawmakers expect that’s coming and are taking preemptive steps, as the court said they could.
