Arizona redistricting panel to resume mapping work
Web Producer: Brian Pryor
PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona's redistricting commission plans Tuesday to resume work on new maps of congressional and legislative districts.
That's after the Arizona Supreme Court has undone Gov. Jan Brewer's attempt to fire the commission's chair.
Meanwhile, Republican legislative leaders say GOP lawmakers want Brewer to call another special session on redistricting.
That could be action ranging from another attempt to remove commission Chair Colleen Mathis to special-election ballot measures on changing the redistricting process.
Brewer is noncommittal, telling reporters that there are options available. But the governor also says she has no talks scheduled with legislative leaders to chart a new course.
The Supreme Court ruled last week that Brewer's grounds for removing commission Coleen Mathis lacked a constitutional basis.
The commission's agenda Tuesday includes discussing a process for drawing final maps.
