Statement from Senator Hansen in Response to Court Redistricting Ruling 

“The court’s decision to require new maps is good news for anyone who supports free, fair and competitive elections.  The responsibility now falls on the Governor and Republican leaders to comply with the court’s order.

 

“Given their track record of gerrymandering and voter suppression the people have good reason to be concerned that the Republicans may not follow the spirit and intent of the court’s ruling.  All the more reason for the Legislature to pass Senate Bill 13 that creates a non-partisan process for drawing the new maps in a way that the public can trust and have confidence in.”
