Twin Falls City Council May Consider Redistricting Challenge
The city of Twin Falls could be joining a challenge of the recent decision of the state’s redistricting commission on where to put the legislative boundaries. The latest plan on where to put the dividing lines for the state’s 35 legislative districts was finalized about two weeks ago but since then there have been rumblings of challenges. Last night the Twin Falls City Council decided to meet again Nov. 7th to get more information and assess options. City Councilman Lance Clow says the problem is that Twin Falls city is now a single district with three legislators. Before the lines were redrawn the city was represented by six legislators. He says the drop in the number of legislators could have dramatic results in future decisions by the Idaho Legislature. No final decisions have been made on what the city council plans to do.
