The Kansas Senate's new leaders are receptive to redrawing the state's political boundaries again next year, even though federal judges drew them just this year.
Incoming Senate President Susan Wagle of Wichita told The Associated Press on Thursday that she is interested in redrawing legislative districts.
However, she said she wants to consult first with attorneys to see whether a quick round of redistricting is allowed under the Kansas Constitution and past court rulings.
In a separate interview, incoming Majority Leader Terry Bruce said he's open to adjusting the state's four congressional districts. He said he'd be willing to consider it if the congressional delegation can agree on a map.
Asked whether Gov. Sam Brownback is interested, his spokeswoman said only that he'd carefully review any legislation sent to him.
