Back to the Political Drawing Board

There’s talk of lawsuits over the plan to delay the drawing of Wisconsin’s new political map.

The state Assembly yesterday approved a proposal to push-back the start of redistricting until February of next year. Lawmakers were supposed to start to redraw the political map this spring, but Republicans want to wait until they have the new Census numbers. Democratic state Rep. Gordon Hintz yesterday said the delay is unnecessary and likely unconstitutional. Republicans say they are trying to make the best out of a bad situation. The delay means the first election under Wisconsin’s new political boundaries won’t happen until 2023.
