Redistricting: Off to Court We Go!

The Nevada Legislature is wrapping up. We're now in the final 24 hour stretch, and the final budget bills must be approved and sent to Governor Sandoval. So really, it isn't too much of a surprise that any sort of redistricting deal finally looks to be dead at #NVLeg.

Maybe this really isn't a bad thing? After all, the current districts we have are a result of a bipartisan "incumbent protection" gerrymander. Perhaps now that judges will decide the new district boundaries rather than politicians looking to protect their own behinds and/or use redistricting as a bargaining chip for something else, we'll see Congressional and legislative districts that actually make more sense. Here's to hope! ;-)
