Fair Boundaries ?

Senate Bill 38 sponsored by Sen. R. Creigh Deeds tries to depoliticizing the redistricting process by establishes an independent panel to redraw legislative and congressional district boundaries. The panel would use population to redraw district boundaries and have both REP and DEM representation. Since the General Assembly has final veto power of the panel’s decisions in congressional boundaries, bill 38 falls short of Sen. Deeds wishes in taking the politics out of redistricting
