Steve Beshear is urging legislative leaders to delay General Assembly redistricting.</p><p>In a letter to House Speaker Greg Stumbo and Senate President Robert Stivers, the governor says he’d like them to hold off redistricting in the 2013 legislative session and instead take up other important issues, such as pension and tax reforms.</p><p>Beshear is opening the door to handling redistricting in a special session instead, because the issue tends to cause hard feelings after lawmakers see their districts changing.</p> Wed, 09 Jan 2013 21:34:04 +0000 Kenny Colston & Rae Hodge 3341 at http://wfpl.org Governor Beshear Wants to Delay Redistricting, But Not Everyone Agrees
