Ohio Congressional Redistricting
More than 71 percent of Ohio voters supported a new bipartisan system to redraw state legislative district lines. Issue 1 tackled gerrymandering at the Statehouse and won in all 88 counties in 2015. The issue was ultimately put on the backburner, with no action being taken by legislators in the Ohio House and Senate.
The issue has been brought up again by Ohio Senator Frank LaRose (R-Copley), who introduced a joint resolution that would require districts to be redrawn according to new statehouse standards. Today we'll discuss Congressional redistricting in Ohio with a panel of guests.
