Panel to replace nominees stricken from list

A state screening panel holds an emergency meeting Friday to respond to an Arizona Supreme Court ruling on nominations for appointments to the state redistricting commission.

The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that two of the 10 Republicans on the 25-nominee list submitted to legislative leaders by the screening panel are ineligible because of service on irrigation district boards makes them public officials.

The screening panel on Friday plans to identify two other Republicans for nomination.

The redistricting commission will draw new congressional and legislative districts.
