GOP lawmakers hire attorneys for redistricting
9 0

Majority Republicans in the Assembly and Senate are hiring attorneys for the court battle over the state's political boundaries.

Leaders voted by paper ballot yesterday to pay two law firms an undisclosed amount to put together a brief, to support an expected appeal.

Jay Heck of the government watchdog group Common Cause says the tab for taxpayers for the redistricting process is already $2.1 million. He says he wouldn't be surprised if the total tops $3 million.

Attorney General Brad Schimel will likely ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal of a federal court decision. A three judge panel ruled last year that the maps unfairly favored the GOP.
