MADISON – Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement regarding today’s introduction of nonpartisan redistricting reform legislation by Legislative Democrats. The legislation is based on Iowa’s successful model of nonpartisan redistricting.
“The majority of Wisconsinites want fair maps and an open, transparent redistricting process. For far too long, politicians have used redistricting to their own political advantage. The people of Wisconsin should be able to choose who represents them, and not the other way around.
It is time to get partisan politics out of redistricting. Non-partisan redistricting reform will guarantee the people of Wisconsin fair representation into the future, no matter who controls the legislature when maps are drawn.”
