Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio Senate Wants To Change Redistricting Process
A bipartisan proposal to change the way Ohio draws state legislative and congressional lines has cleared the state Senate with almost unanimous support.
The resolution would create a seven-member commission to draw all maps, and at least one minority party member would have to approve the boundaries.
The House isn’t expected to act on the proposal and that chamber’s vote is needed to put the measure before voters.
Sen. Frank LaRose, a co-sponsor, said the Senate plan could serve as a roadmap for discussion next year.
Voters rejected a ballot proposal to revise Ohio’s redistricting process in November. LaRose said the issue failed because of flaws, not because people didn’t want to see the process change.
Thursday was the last scheduled voting day for the state Legislature.
