Strike One for Redistricting Reform

with 2 comments

In a predawn subcommittee meeting this morning, House Republicans killed Del. Ken Plum’s HB339 – one of several redistricting reform measures before the General Assembly this session – on an unrecorded voice vote.

In the video below, Del. Plum concludes his remarks, Del. Bob Brink motions to report the bill, and Del. John O’Bannon makes a substitute motion to lay the bill on the table. He was joined by Dels. Chris Jones, Terrie Suit, and Rob Bell; Dels. Brink and Rosalyn Dance opposed the tabling.
