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.
