Lawmakers consider redistricting commission funds

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Legislature is planning to consider yet another supplemental appropriation for the state commission that drew up new legislative and congressional districts following the 2010 Census.

The Independent Redistricting Commission is the subject of several lawsuits challenging how it drew the district maps. A weeklong trial on the state Legislative maps was held in federal court last month and a three-judge panel could issue a decision at any time.

The Legislature approved an emergency $500,000 appropriation in January. The commission is now asking for between $635,000 and $720,000 to pay legal and other bills through June 30.

A House committee gave permission Monday for the late introduction of another supplemental appropriations bill.

House Speaker Andy Tobin says the bill will call for just over $635,000 is extra funding.
