Stumbo to Beshear: House Ready for Redistricting
By AP
FRANKFORT, KY - Pressure is beginning to mount to call lawmakers back to Frankfort this year for a special legislative session on political redistricting.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo said in a letter to Gov. Steve Beshear on Tuesday that his chamber "stands ready to act" if called into special session.

Beshear has said he is considering such a move.

A group of northern Kentucky officials filed suit in federal court last week against Beshear and other state officials to force the Legislature to act.

Redistricting is supposed to occur every 10 years to account for population changes found by the U.S. Census Bureau. Kentucky lawmakers haven't yet redrawn boundaries based on the 2010 count.

Their first attempt last year was struck down as unconstitutional.
