Kansas Redistricting

A panel of three federal judges last week issued new political maps for Kansas. New boundary lines were issued for members of Congress, the state Senate, the state House and the Kansas Board of Education.

The beleaguered National Bio and Agro-Defense facility could face yet more challenges as a result of new congressional parameters released today by a three-judge panel.


A three-judge panel set new electoral maps for Kansas' congressional, state House, state Senate and Board of Education districts in a ruling last night, according to the Kansas City Star / AP.  

Last week, the Kansas legislature adjourned after a tumultuous year.  Lawmakers passed Gov. Sam Brownback's dramatic tax cut plan, which could reduce the state budget by more than $2 billion over the next five years. 

Kansas lawmakers are starting the years-long task of redrawing the lines for both national and state political offices. An advisory group began meeting this week in Topeka to look at the redistricting process.
