If approved by both the house and senate and then signed by Governor Steve Beshear (D), the plan would mean that all of Trigg County would be represented by Lynn Bechler (R). Currently, part of Trigg County is in District Eight – represented by John Tilley (D) – and part is in District Five – represented by Kenny Imes (R).
Under the proposed plan, Imes would represent all of Calloway County and a small part of Marshall County, and Tilley would represent part of Christian County, which would split into Districts Eight, Nine and 10. Districts Nine and 10 are represented by Myron Dossett (R) and Ben Waide (R), respectively.
