Despite Trepidation, Redistricting Bill Progressing

After more than a year of on-and-off negotiation, the state Senate has moved a congressional redistricting overhaul to the floor of the full chamber.

However, the compromise measure is expected to undergo significant changes before it heads to the House as soon as next week.

As it stands, the bill would amend the state constitution to create an independent citizens’ commission made up of four Democrats, four Republicans, and three Independents.
