The League of Women Voters of Utah and other groups and individuals filed a lawsuit asking a state court to strike down Utah's congressional map as a partisan gerrymander and to reinstate the authority of the state's Independent Redistricting Commission that was created by ballot initiative in 2018 and then relegated to an advisory role by the state legislature in 2020.
Utah Gov. Spencer Cox signed HB2004 into law, establishing a new congressional districting plan that splits Salt Lake County into all four districts. The new map was drawn by the state Legislature and largely ignores a set of plans proposed by the state's advisory Independent Redistricting Commission.

Who controls redistricting in Utah right now?
Republicans fully control the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn by an independent commission made up of citizens, but the Republican state legislature can modify or reject the commission's proposals. The final map must be passed by the state legislature and signed into law by the Republican governor.
