LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Three Republican backed proposals to redraw Arkansas' congressional districts have been rejected in separate committees while a Democratic lawmaker says he'll change a redistricting plan that's headed toward a House vote.
The Senate State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee on Wednesday rejected redistricting plans by Republican Sens. Bill Pritchard and Johnny Key. Also Wednesday the House State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee rejected a redistricting plan by Republican Rep. Andrea Lea.
Meanwhile, Rep. Clark Hall said he plans to change a redistricting proposal that had been scheduled for a House vote Wednesday afternoon and is strongly opposed by many Republicans. The plan would move the city of Fayetteville from the Third to the Fourth Congressional District and Hall said he will not change that portion of the proposal.
The House and the Senate convened for the 88th General Assembly this year.
