STATEMENT FROM OHIO SECRETARY OF STATE JON HUSTED
Columbus – Regarding today’s passage of bipartisan redistricting reform in the Ohio Senate, all of the following may be attributed to Secretary of State Jon Husted:
“Today’s vote was a positive sign that momentum for reform is alive in the legislature.
“Every year we have seen steady progress. In the last general assembly the Senate passed my redistricting reform plan, and this marks the fourth straight general assembly legislation has been debated to change the system.
“I am optimistic that Republicans and Democrats can pass a plan next year that will help restore competitiveness and common sense to our political process.”
