The Alaska Redistricting Board is scheduled to meet next week in Anchorage to discuss a recent supreme court decision.
A divided Alaska Supreme Court in December ordered the redistricting plan be redrawn after finding the board did not follow the process it was instructed to follow.
The board has asked the court to reconsider. Board attorneys say the court, among other things, misconstrued or overlooked facts and violated the separation of powers doctrine by dictating the process the board must use in drawing a map.
Tuesday's board meeting is scheduled to include an update on the case and a discussion on staffing.
Chairman John Torgerson says he hopes the court reconsiders. He says the court's decision could have huge implications not only for this board but also future boards.
