FRANKFORT, Ky. (8/25/13) – The following is a statement by Governor Steve Beshear regarding the Redistricting Bill that has been a very highly-debated topic over the past year.
“I’m pleased that our legislators have met the constitutional requirements for new districts and that this special session was held to the minimum five-day period, and I have signed the bill so these new districts take effect immediately. I expect these maps will withstand legal scrutiny, so all Kentuckians can be assured of appropriate representation in the General Assembly.”
