Senator McCollister Will Push for Fair Redistricting Maps in Nebraska
Senator John McCollister will introduce a redistricting bill in the 2021 legislative session that will move Nebraska toward a fair redisricting process.
“I will reintroduce the provisions in LB 1207 in the 2021 legislative session,” McCollister said. “The bill includes refinements suggested by Senators Sara Howard, Wendy DeBoer and Tony Vargas that prohibit consideration of the political affiliation and voting data of registered voters and demographic information other than from the U.S. Bureau of the Census when drawing legislative boundaries. The bill also retains the important provision that a hearing on the proposed maps occur in each of the congressional districts in the state.”
