No deal yet on congressional redistricting

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Negotiators have had no formal discussions
since last week about redrawing boundary lines around Kentucky's
congressional districts.

Senate Democratic Leader R.J. Palmer said Monday that a
compromise on competing proposals has been elusive.

The House and Senate adjourned Friday morning without a
resolution. Both chambers are scheduled back in session at 4 p.m.
EST on Monday.

The Democratic-controlled House and the Republican-dominated
Senate settled on new lines around state legislative districts
after a prolonged debate that spanned most of the past three weeks.
Gov. Steve Beshear signed the legislative redistricting bill into
law on Friday.

Palmer said the House and Senate had hoped to work out
differences in their congressional redistricting proposals in time
for floor votes Monday.
