LRC http://wfpl.org en Legislative Leaders Will Attempt Payment for Redistricting Defense Again http://wfpl.org/post/legislative-leaders-will-attempt-payment-redistricting-defense-again <p>&nbsp;</p><p>Legislative leaders are going to take another crack at approving payments to lawyers who fought to defend last year&rsquo;s redistricting maps.</p><p>The Legislative Research Commission hired the attorneys earlier this year to fend off challenges to new district maps. The attorneys were unsuccessful.</p><p>At the last scheduled LRC meeting, absences allowed minority leaders to block approval of payment to the attorneys.</p><p>So a new meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, and &nbsp;officials hope to reverse the decision.</p> Wed, 27 Jun 2012 20:00:00 +0000 Kenny Colston 801 at http://wfpl.org
