A new map of Kentucky’s congressional districts is on the verge of becoming law.
State House Speaker Greg Stumbo declared congressional redistricting dead earlier this week, since it looked like both chambers could not agree on the new districts. But with the state Senate able to find enough votes to pass a compromise, a new map is in play.
Efforts to redraw Kentucky's U.S. House districts are dead in the General Assembly.
State House Speaker Greg Stumbo made that declaration after the state Senate could not agree to the latest compromise on district maps.
"I think that ship has sailed, that bell's rung," Stumbo said. "I think the Secretary of State will have to certify those folks as the candidates and so the current status of law is that in my opinion they would run in the current Congressional district."
