 FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- House lawmakers are set to review their redistricting bill in committee. 
 
   State Rep. Brent Yonts, chairman of the House State Government Committee, says a redistricting bill will be unveiled after the House's 2 p.m. session on Monday.
 
   Lawmakers will need to rush to get the matter resolved. Only about nine working days remain in the current legislative session.
 
   Redistricting is supposed to occur every 10 years to account for population changes found by the U.S. Census Bureau.
 
   Legislation that passed last year was struck down by the state Supreme Court. Justices found the new districts weren't balanced by population and didn't comply with the "one person, one vote" mandate in federal and state law.
