The Kentucky Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the General Assembly’s re-districting legislation Friday.
A news release says arguments will begin Friday morning at 9am central time Friday in Frankfort. The state’s highest court will rule on whether the bills passed by the state house and senate are constitutional or if new boundaries will have to be drawn.
A Franklin Circuit Judge ruled last month that legislators will have to run in their old districts, saying the new ones were drawn with political motivations. The General Assembly must re-district every ten years following the census, with each district having to represent an equal percentage of the state’s population as the others.
