Kind Says Veto Redistricting Lines
Last night, the Wisconsin state Assembly passed a bill drawing boundary lines for the state's 132 legislative districts. The bill passed 57-40 and now heads to Governor Scott Walker for his consideration. And before the Governor signs the bills, U.S. Representative Ron Kind wants him to think before signing. Kind is asking the Governor to veto the bills.
He says this process is one of the most partisan processes our state has seen....rushing the process to draw divisive lines before towns can draw their own boundaries and manipulating expected outcomes to secure Republican seats.
The Wisconsin Democrat says the redistricting maps passed by the state legislature are just another partisan power grab by our state government.
The Senate passed the bill on Tuesday.
