Redistricting Fight

By  | 

A battle over a new Republican-backed congressional redistricting law l goes to the Colorado Supreme Court Monday

During the three hour session, justices will hear arguments on two key points. The first is whether redistricting is allowed to happen more than once each decade. The second is a dispute over whether the state's Democratic state attorney general can sue a state officer he's obligated to represent to block the plan.

Politicians across the country will be paying attention. If the law is upheld, other states may start redrawing district lines in between each election, doing away with the idea of relatively stable congressional districts.
