A resolution introduced by all but one majority Senate Republican would ask voters to amend the Arizona Constitution to eliminate the Independent Redistricting Commission.
Voters in 2000 approved an initiative measure creating the commission and making it responsible for the once-a-decade redrawing of new congressional and legislative districts.
Republican legislators have denounced the current commission’s work, and the Republican-led Senate ratified Gov. Jan Brewer’s removal of the commission’s independent chairwoman.
The Arizona Supreme Court overturned the removal, saying Brewer acted without constitutional grounds.
