House lawmakers still wrestling with redistricting

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - House Speaker Greg Stumbo says he's still
not sure if a proposal to redraw legislative district boundaries
will get through the General Assembly this year.
The Prestonsburg Democrat said Monday that the once-a-decade
chore has stirred contention and that no agreement has been reached
yet on how state House districts should be divvied up.
Legislative and congressional redistricting is done after Census
counts to accommodate population changes. The hope had been to get
redistricting completed early in the legislative session that began
last week. But Stumbo warned Monday that may have been wishful
thinking.
He reminded reporters that he had called for a special session
late last year to deal with the always contentious issue.
