REDISTRICTING REFORM IN INDIANA IS NOT OVER!

No Legislative Summer Study, So We'll Have Our Own

Despite the passage of Senate Concurrent Resolution 30 (sponsored by Senator Greg Walker) which called for a summer study committee on redistricting issues, the Legislative Council failed to assign the issue to a committee. So, there will be no official legislative study committee this summer. But, that's not all bad. Study committee chairs alternate between the House and Senate each year, so it was the House's turn to chair this year. Without Senator Walker leading the effort we could have ended up with a bad recommendation, so it's probably just as well the Legislative Council didn't follow through. And, their failure will give our coalition the opportunity to sponsor a conference this summer to bring in several national experts on key redistricting issues to educate both lawmakers and activists. We'll need your help spreading the word about the conference and getting legislators to attend. No date set yet - we're looking at mid to late summer - more news to come.

Read about the past actions.
