Rep. Bill Farmer, R-Lexington (88th District) announced today he has filed a bill for the 2012 Legislation Session that seeks to create a non-partisan panel that would handle the issue of redistricting in future sessions. 

Under House Bill 304 the seven justices of the Kentucky Supreme Court would each appoint one person from his or her court district to serve on a panel tasked with handling all duties related to redistricting in both the House and Senate, including gathering population data and feedback from citizens throughout the Commonwealth.
