LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- The top leader of Nebraska's Legislature is warning that he will end the special session convened to draw new congressional and legislative maps if lawmakers fail to advance both measures by Saturday, a move that would likely delay the state's May 2022 primary election.

Speaker of the Legislature Mike Hilgers says he'd prefer to approve all of the redistricting maps in the current session, but he adds that he's not going to continue if lawmakers keep failing to reach an agreement.

Lawmakers remained at an impasse on Tuesday over how to redraw Nebraska's congressional and legislative maps to adjust for population losses in rural areas and gains around Omaha and Lincoln.
