Redistricting makes budget cut

Governor Tony Evers is making good on his word that he would address redistricting reform during his tenure. The newly elected governor announced Tuesday a proposal that would take the district map drawing process out of the hands of legislators into those of a non-partisan panel. It is based on the model popularized in Iowa with a couple tweaks to it according to state Senator Dave Hansen.

Senator Hansen cited recent polling and resolutions passed by municipalities across the state as reasons to pass redistricting reform to bring competitiveness back to elections.
