Senate committee approves map

Just an AP wire report with little detail right now, but a map was passed out of the Senate Jurisprudence Committee on a 4-3 vote along partisan lines. The map is apparently the Staples map with some tweaks, according to the Quorum Report. From here it goes to the Senate floor, then the House v. Senate battle is joined, with a bicameral commission on the horizon in the event that no quick agreement is worked out. Next week will be the key.

UPDATE: More from Jim at the Burnt Orange Report, including a link to the actual map.
