The leaders of the Alabama Legislature's reapportionment committee intend to unveil their proposed plans Wednesday for drawing new legislative districts.
The Senate co-chairman, Republican Gerald Dial, says he will recommend Senate districts that don't pit any incumbent senators against one another.
The House co-chairman, Republican Jim McClendon, says people will have to wait until Wednesday to see if any incumbents get their districts combined in his House plan.
A white Democratic representative, Joe Hubbard of Montgomery, said several Republicans have already told him that he will get moved into the district represented by a black Democrat, Rep. John Knight of Montgomery. Hubbard predicts the same thing to happen to some other white Democrats or they will have their districts redesigned to make re-election difficult.
