Changes sought for how political boundaries are drawn Submitted: 09/10/2013
Madison - How political boundaries get drawn can give an advantage to a political party. A bipartisan group of current and former Wisconsin lawmakers are coming together to call for changes in the way the Legislature draws those lines. Republican state Senator Dale Schultz and Democratic Senator Tim Cullen scheduled a news conference today to talk about their push for redistricting reform. The government watchdog group Common Cause and others have called for changes in how Wisconsin redraws political boundaries every decade to make it less partisan. Those in the Legislature, both Republicans and Democrats, have been unwilling to give up the authority to draw the lines. (Copyright 2013 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
