Democrats in the Legislature are moving ahead with a proposed constitutional amendment that would delay the redrawing of district boundaries by two years, a plan unpopular among a number of progressive groups and Republicans.

The Assembly Judiciary Committee has scheduled a required public hearing on the amendment, which must ultimately be approved by voters, for Monday at 10 a.m. Both legislative houses need to move quickly to approve the measure with 60% majority votes by Aug. 3, the deadline for placing a question on the November ballot.
