Nevada group to seek signatures for redistricting initiative

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Nevada political group plans to begin collecting signatures for a petition aimed at creating an appointed commission to redraw state legislative and U.S. congressional voting maps.

The group Fair Maps Nevada on Tuesday submitted a revised petition to the Nevada Secretary of State.

The group will need about 100,000 signatures of registered voters by June 16 to qualify the measure for the November ballot.

An opponent's attorney says he hasn't decided whether to appeal a judge's decision that let Fair Maps Nevada amend the petition to meet legal requirements.
