Last month, the state’s Citizens Redistricting Commission announced it planned to cease operations June 30 because it was de-funded.
Today, the commission announced in a news release that won’t be the case after all.
Somehow the commission and the Legislature found enough pennies to “maintain basic services” through the 2012-13 fiscal year.
The 14-member independent board was created by voters in 2010. The idea was to take the once-in-a-decade redistricting out of the Legislature’s hands.
