(BOISE) – The state’s bipartisan Redistricting Commission has spent the past several weeks drawing up new political boundaries for Idaho’s 35 legislative districts. Regionally Teton and Madison Counties will form their own district, Bingham County will become its own, and Power County will be combined with Bannock County. The commission has until Sept. 4 to make final plans. GOP Chairman Lou Esposito praised the efforts of Democrats and Republicans working toward a final map that both sides can be happy with.
