NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Republicans appear in no hurry to reveal their plans for reshaping Tennessee's congressional districts.
The GOP proposals for new district lines in the state House and Senate were unveiled Wednesday, but leaders were unwilling to say when the new outlines of the state's nine congressional districts would be made public.
Republican House Speaker Beth Harwell would only say that the two chambers were putting their final touches on the maps and trying to ensure that everyone was in agreement. She would not specify whether there were any disputes left to hammer out.
U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper attended a House committee meeting this week to urge lawmakers not to split up his Nashville district, one of only two seats in Tennessee's congressional delegation currently represented by Democrats.
