RALEIGH, N.C. — The fight over legislative districts is not just having an impact on politics, but it is also costing taxpayers.

Members of the Council of State agreed on Tuesday to transfer $100,000 from the state's emergency fund to help pay legal costs for the redistricting effort.

Court battles over district maps could also delay the May primary.
