FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) — Gov. Andy Beshear signed off on the new Kentucky Supreme Court districts Tuesday. 

The Kentucky General Assembly passed new district maps for the House, Senate, Congress, and the State Supreme Court on Jan. 8.

Democrats criticized the newly drawn maps saying they tipped the scale toward more republican.


Tuesday Beshear said he would put pen to paper on one of those maps.

“We are still analyzing the bills but I do intend to sign the supreme court redistricting bill today,” Beshear said.

He added that he believes the process should be done by a non-partisan group instead of by the legislature.

If no action is taken by Thursday, all maps will become law, even without the governor’s signature.
