Redistricting concerns
Plans for changing judicial districts after more than thirty years have some local law officials concerned. At a legislative committee meeting in Nashville lawyers, police officers, and public defenders will be discussing redistricting. Speaker of the house Ron Ramsey came out in favor of drawing different lines in the judicial areas of Tennessee. It could have some impact locally, the first judicial district could see a split with Washington county becoming its own district leaving Unicoi, Johnson, and Carter as one district. The realignment would mean new hires of a district attorney but could cut some jobs, change the descriptions of judges and court systems, and it could lead to the death of the drug task force, whose law enforcement efforts result in several massive drug operations being busted each year. The redistricting would first have to be approved by the legislature but if that occurs it could be in place by 2014. (CC)
