Democrats Push for Redistricting by GAB Bill

According to WPR, the Democrats will push today for a vote on a bill they introduced last July in the Wisconsin Assembly to change the way we handle redistricting every 10 years. The bill calls for the GAB to draw up new maps, and then the maps would go to the legislature to be voted on. If the maps don't pass, they're sent back to the GAB.

Such a bill would prevent any more secret gerrymandering in the future, but Republicans are expected to block it.
