The battle over Wisconsin’s political maps could take another step forward today.
The Wisconsin Senate has scheduled a vote on the plan to create an Iowa-style commission to draw new maps in the state. Governor Evers has threatened to veto that plan, but there are now reports that Republicans in the Assembly have found some Democratic votes to override that veto. The move for a commission comes as Wisconsin’s Supreme Court is working toward redrawing the state’s legislative maps ahead of this year’s elections. It’s unclear just what a new commission would mean for that court battle.
