Arizona panel to interview redistricting applicants

Arizonans applying to serve on the state redistricting commission will be on the hot seat today, but only briefly.

A state nominating commission that is screening the applicants has scheduled brief interviews Wednesday of 40 semifinalists.

The nominating commission decided to interview the semifinalists because it wants to be assured that each applicant understands the time commitment involved with drawing new congressional and legislative districts.

The commission must nominate 25 people to serve on the five-member commission. Legislative leaders will select four of the five commissioners and those four will select the fifth commissioner.
