FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Negotiators trying to hammer out a deal on congressional redistricting in Kentucky have taken a break from their talks but plan to resume Friday morning.
Brian Wilkerson, spokesman for House Speaker Greg Stumbo, said an agreement remained elusive Thursday evening.
Lawmakers have passed a legislative redistricting plan. But, so far, they haven't been able to come to terms on widely differing congressional proposals.
The House is pressing for a plan that would put Republican U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers in a vastly reshaped district. The Senate plan would reshape Democratic U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler's district.
The Senate and House also disagree on which districts two of Kentucky's largest cities, Ashland and Owensboro, should be a part of.
