Senate Committee Introduces Plan to Overhaul Redistricting Process in KS


Sunflower 13One of many redistricting maps considered this session by the Legislature.A committee in the Kansas Senate is proposing a constitutional amendment that would change the redistricting process.  The amendment would create a commission that would draw redistricting maps. Currently, state lawmakers draw the maps for congressional and legislative districts. Republican Senator Tim Owens, of Overland Park, chairs that chamber's redistricting committee.  He says the dispute this year shows the process needs reform.

Under the proposal, most members of the commission would be appointed by the Legislature. A similar proposal failed earlier this month in the House. Some opponents said the process would still be contentious, even with an appointed commission.
