Plans to redraw Alabama’s legislative districts passed quickly in the House and Senate following hours of robotic bill reading requested by opponents seeking to stall the process.
In January, a federal court ordered the Legislature to redraw the districts for three Senate seats and nine House seats before the 2018 elections. The three-judge panel said the Legislature illegally used race as a factor in drawing the districts in 2012.
The plans change 25 of the Alabama’s 35 Senate districts and 60 of the state’s 105 House districts.
