Court Masters Propose New NV Congressional Districts

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A panel of court masters has submitted plans to
a judge in Carson City for how they'd redraw Nevada's congressional
districts.

A court spokeswoman told The Associated Press on Friday
afternoon that the maps had been submitted, and are expected to be
scanned before being made available to the public electronically.

The specifics of the plan are expected to show whether the panel
sides with Democrats or Republicans, who want the boundaries
determined differently. The boundaries are meant to reflect the
state's shifting demographics after a decade of booming population
growth.

The panel was asked to draw the maps because the Nevada
Legislature didn't finish the job during the recent legislative
session.

The Democrat-controlled Legislature passed two maps, but each
version was vetoed by Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval.
