Today the United States Supreme Court announced that it will take under review the redistricting case impacting North Carolina's 1st and 12th Congressional Districts, of which I serve in the 12th.

Today's decision will allow the court to decide whether or not the 1st and the 12th congressional Districts illegally compacts minority communities into those congressional districts.

"As I have said before, this is a wait and sees process to determine how this will impact my constituents. Therefore I am focused and committed to serving the current 12th Congressional District until January 2017," said Rep. Adams.
