JUNEAU- An attorney says the plaintiffs who sued over the state's redistricting plan in 2011 will challenge the latest iteration drawn up by the Alaska Redistricting Board.
Jason Gazewood says the Fairbanks-area House district pairings used to create Senate districts are too dissimilar. He says there are problems, too, with splits in the Matanuska-Susitna region.
Michael Walleri, who also represents the plaintiffs, had warned the board of a challenge if it didn't make changes to the Fairbanks-area districts.
The board last Sunday approved a map it contends meets constitutional requirements. That plan has been submitted to a judge for review.
The Alaska Supreme Court ordered a new map be drawn for the 2014 elections after allowing an interim plan to be used for 2012 races.
