Hansen Continues To Push For Redistricting Reform

 

A Green Bay senator continues to push for a change in how redistricting is carried out in Wisconsin.

Democrat Dave Hansen says he'd like a process where any redrawing of district boundaries is done in a non-partisan way.                                                                            

Hansen says there's been "push back from the other side" regarding the plan but says he's "willing and ready" to work with any Republican on the bill to move it forward.

Sen. Frank Lasee (R-De Pere) -- who represents Door and Kewaunee counties -- declined to comment for this story but in an October 2010 interview Lasee told DoorCountyDailyNews.com he didn't think a true non-partisan panel could exist.

Hansen addressed the redistricting plan Thursday during a board meeting of Common Cause-Wisconsin in Madison.

"What happened in the last redistricting, they actually moved two state employees into a law office outside of the Capitol with three state computers and secretly drew up the lines with no public input," says Hansen. "We just think that's wrong."
