The six-member, bipartisan commission met Thursday morning, then broke into groups to discuss alternatives that would be constitutional, after justices ruled last week that a previous proposal split too many counties.  That ruling set off a week of furor, as GOP Chairman Norm Semanko and House Speaker Lawrence Denney sued to remove two Republican commissioners; Randy Hansen of Twin Falls and Delores Crow of Nampa. The Supreme Court threw out their claim Wednesday, but Semanko and Denney say they’re still reviewing legal options. Secretary of State Ben Ysursa said regardless of the threat of renewed court action, this commission will go forward.
