A Lexington lawmaker wants to avoid the partisan fighting over legislative redistricting.

Representative Bill Farmer filed a bill that would create a non-partisan panel, to handle redistricting in the future.

Every ten years the state is required to redraw legislative and congressional boundaries to deal with population shifts.

This year many are unhappy with a House plan that puts Republicans in the same districts as well as a senate plan that moves Democrats' districts to other parts of the state.
