Indiana House Republicans approved a redistricting bill Thursday that likely maintains GOP supermajorities in the Statehouse and eliminates any competitive races for Congress.
Democrats have long decried the redistricting process. Unfair maps drawn ten years ago, they argue, created a biased system. And Rep. Carey Hamilton (D-Indianapolis) said the new maps perpetuate that.
“Let’s be clear: these maps are among the most gerrymandered in the history of our nation," Hamilton said. "And thus, by definition, they will disenfranchise voters.”
