Arizona redistricting panel to consider final maps

A state commission’s work on drawing new congressional and legislative districts for Arizona could be near the finish line after a nearly yearlong process.

The Independent Redistricting Commission has scheduled a meeting for Friday in Tempe.

The agenda calls for discussion and possible action on technical changes to the proposed final maps.

The commission says there’s also a chance that the commission could give final approval to those maps during the same meeting. But the commission also plans to meet next Tuesday.

Arizona and other states redraw political boundaries every decade to reflect population changes recorded by the U.S. Census.

Redistricting is important politically and can be contentious. It has been this time for Arizona because of Republicans’ criticism of the commission and its proposed new maps.
