After The Vote: Redistricting Amendment Passes

Roger Hannigan Gilson’s piece in the Legislative Gazette on the redistricting amendment’s passage can be found here.

A few things to note: the legislature would not be necessarily bound by the criteria assigned to the commission if the legislature decides to craft its own plan (after rejecting two commission plans). LATFOR, the state legislature’s redistricting task force,would still remain as a functioning body even after  a new commission is created in 2021. LATFOR’s role may be unclear to some, but it will remain an entity unless the legislature decides to eliminate it in a future annual state budget. LATFOR may actually have a “defined” role if the legislature tasks it to develop Plan #3.
