Arizona redistricting panel to hold first meeting

Arizona’s redistricting commission meets for the first time later this month as it reconstitutes itself to start the process of drawing new congressional and legislative districts for use in the coming decade.

The four Independent Redistricting Commission members appointed by legislative leaders have scheduled a Feb. 24 meeting in Phoenix to pick one of five independent applicants as the fifth commissioner.

The legislative leaders’ appointments include two Democrats and two Republicans.
