Prisoner counting decision gets appealed by Republicans

The Times-Union's Jimmy Vielkind caught this key piece in the ongoing redistricting process. As expected, Republicans are appealing the ruling that will allow prisoners to be counted in their last known home address prior to incarceration for the purpose of redistricting.

As Jimmy points out, the Republicans are trying to move up the appeals ladder quickly, petitioning to have the case reviewed directly by the Federal Court of Appeals.
