CO Supreme Court discusses legislative districts

(AP) — The Colorado Supreme Court will hear arguments on proposed legislative districts that could make one-third of the state's races competitive.

The maps approved by an 11-member bipartisan panel in September are part of a once-a-decade process to redraw legislative districts to account for population changes.

Justices will hear arguments Wednesday from the panel's attorney and groups who filed objections to the maps. The court will issue a written ruling in the coming weeks.

The proposed districts would make 11 of the 35 seats in the Senate competitive. Twenty-two of the House's 65 seats would also be considered competitive. If approved, 24 of the 100 seats in the Legislature would be districts where at least 30 percent of voters are Hispanic.
