This week state lawmakers tackle what’s likely to be the thorniest issue of the session - redrawing Congressional districts.  Last Friday, the two parties introduced their preliminary maps -- and they’re worlds apart.  The Republican proposal looks a lot like the current map.  The Democratic maps take things in a very different direction. Ryan Warner talks with CPR's Megan Verlee, who's covering the process.
