House Redistricting Map May Face Opposition in Senate



The Kansas House has approved its own plan for drawing new state Senate districts. That’s a break with tradition. Generally, chambers redraw their own districts without input from the other chamber. But the House modified and then passed a map that senators had previously rejected. Senate Vice President John Vratil (vratil rhythms with “rattle”), a Leawood Republican, says he believes senators won’t take much time reviewing the plan.

House leaders said there were problems with the redistricting map the Senate drew for itself. But critics say the House is pushing for a map that will help defeat Democrats and moderate Republicans in the Senate. Some lawmakers believe the Legislature may not be able to come to an agreement on redistricting and the courts will have to step in.
