  • Trimble spared in redistricting

    Henry and Carroll counties are no longer part of the state’s 26th Senate district. Those counties, which, historically, have been served by Republican Sen. Ernie Harris, now fall into the 20th District, represented by Sen. Paul Hornback, also a Republican.

    Population growth statewide, as documented by the 2010 U.S. census, means districts for both the state House of Representatives and Senate were redrawn, approved and signed into law by Gov. Steve Beshear last week. Lawmakers are still working to redraw the six districts for the U.S. House of Representatives.
