Wednesday is Brewer deadline on redistricting bill

Gov. Jan Brewer faces a Wednesday deadline to act on a bill to provide the state redistricting commission with funding to keep it going for the rest of the fiscal year.
Brewer so far hasn’t signaled whether she plans to sign or veto the bill to provide an additional $700,000 that the commission says it needs due to unanticipated legal expenses.
Brewer lost a court battle with the commission last fall when the Arizona Supreme Court overturned Brewer’s removal of the commission’s chair.
The commission has said it will sue for more funding if it doesn’t get additional funding.
Brewer received the bill from the Legislature last Thursday.
