The Ohio Senate passed a version of  HJR 12, the Ohio House of Representative’s plan to amend the Ohio Constitution to making drawing a districting map for Ohio legislative elections more nonpartisan.  See our prior post Ohio House passes Redistricting Reform Measure.  “In the Senate-approved version, the second time the panel doesn’t get minority approval, the map would be in place for six years. During that time, the panel’s makeup could change.” Cleveland.com article Bipartisan Redistricting Reform passes Senate in Historic Vote.   The House will need to vote on the version as passed by the Senate.

If approved, the plan will go to Ohio voters to decide whether to accept this amendment to the Ohio Constitution.
