FILE -- This Dec. 7, 2011 file photo shows Arizona State Senate Majority Leader Andy Biggs (R) speaking to the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission in Phoenix. It's early on in the Arizona legislative session, but so far the proposals described by one top Republican as "esoteric" and criticized by Democrats as unconstitutional have dominated the headlines. Biggs and House Speaker Andy Tobin are tasked with determining whether proposals advance to a full legislative debate. AP Photo/Matt York, file)
