Dubbing the maps a "fair and legal" alternative to those proposed by the ruling Republican Party, Democrats in the General Assembly have released their own proposals for redrawing congressional and state senate districts. The plan would keep Asheville in the 11th congressional district, instead of dividing it with the 10th.
The proposed North Carolina Senate redistricting maps grow Democratic Sen. Martin Nesbitt's 49th District to encompass most of Buncombe County. Republican Sen. Tom Apodaca's 48th District meanwhile, loses Polk County but gains Transylvania. His district also expands slightly to include all of Henderson County and part of southern Buncombe.
Two pieces of legislation affecting the city of Asheville — studying the transfer of the water system and giving the Asheville Regional Airport to an independent authority — won't become law this year. Sen. Tom Apodaca's office confirms that, with the end of the session looming, neither bill will get through the Senate this session.
