Redistricting Commission Does It Again
(AP) Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs says he will talk with Twin Falls County commissioners to see if they want to again challenge the most recent legislative maps created by an Idaho redistricting commission.
Loebs tells The Times-News that the new map approved Friday splits Twin Falls County three ways for no legitimate reason. He says he will speak with county commissioners today about a challenge. Twin Falls County and three others in November sued after a redistricting map was approved in October. The Idaho Supreme Court last week ruled the map unconstitutional because it contained too many unnecessary county splits. Loebs says the new map has the same problem, splitting Twin Falls County when an alternative plan would have avoided that without putting other counties at a disadvantage.
