Redistricting commission meets today in Tempe

Arizona’s redistricting commission meets Thursday in Tempe, with an agenda including items ranging from work on new maps to discussing how to respond to an inquiry by the state Attorney General’s Office.

Much of the Independent Redistricting Commission meeting is scheduled to focus on providing direction to mapping consultants regarding ideas for ways to draw new congressional and legislative districts.

The commission already had an agenda item scheduled on the attorney general’s inquiry before that office on Wednesday filed a petition in Maricopa County Superior Court.

The office is seeking a court order to compel three of the five commissions to cooperate with an investigation of possible open meeting law violations.
