Dear League Members,

 

The two redistricting measures the League has supported have passed both the state Senate and House and are headed for the ballot this fall.

 

SCR18-004 and SCR18-005 went through third reading in the State House yesterday, May 7th, the resolutions were passed unanimously with no amendments. The leadership of both houses were very pleased to be able to work together for a change.

 

This means that we will not have to gather signatures this summer. Educational meetings will begin in August and in the fall.
