After the last few months, it should be clear that the solution to our broken redistricting system is not putting more power in the hands of partisan politicians. This is wrong, and it is an affront to our democracy. I urge the full House to reject this partisan political power play and demand a vote on a truly independent redistricting commission.”last_img read more
