Redistricting is here! Walker needs to go in November 2012.

Silently and behind the scenes....It looks like Walker approved a bill to allow the state to redistrict before local redistricting, plowing the way for the new maps:

Today Governor Walker signed Senate Bill 150 into law as Act 39, which modifies the order of redistricting among units of government.

jsonline: Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill Monday that will allow the Legislature to create new maps of legislative and congressional districts before those of common councils and county boards, but he did not signal whether he would approve the legislative and congressional maps.

Wisconsin Radio Network: The issue is ultimately expected to be decided in the courts, just as in the last three decades. The new maps were first introduced on July 8th, and approved by the full legislature last week.
