Democratic Rep. McCann calls for change to redistricting laws

Jun 11, 2013

Michigan’s state legislative districts are redrawn after every U.S. Census.  The last time around the process turned contentious and led many Democrats to allege gerrymandering by the GOP majority.  They point to what they say are contorted district lines drawn to ensure a political advantage.  

Now, some state lawmakers are formally calling for a change.  Democratic State Representative Sean McCann of Kalamazoo and his allies have introduced a plan they say would eliminate gerrymandered districts and “take politics out of the process." He tells us about his plan.
