State submits redrawn legislative maps to Justice

Newly drawn legislative district maps have been submitted for approval to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Arizona Republic reports the Independent Redistricting Commission sent its request to Washington Tuesday.

The Justice Department must sign off on Arizona’s new political boundary lines to ensure compliance with the Federal Voting Rights Act.

Once the Justice Department approves, and if there are no lawsuits, the new boundary lines will remain in place for state elections for the next decade.
