Background of the Fight to End Partisan Redistricting in Indiana
- In 2019 Senator Greg Walker, Randy Head, Mike Bohacek and John Ruckelshaus authored Senate Bill 105. While the bill passed the Senate, the House Elections Chair, Tim Wesco, failed to give the bill a hearing.
- In 2017 and 2018, Speaker of the House Brian Bosma and Rep. Jerry Torr sponsored legislation based on this recommendation. It received a hearing in the Elections Committee but not a vote. The bill died after receiving overwhelming support in the Senate in 2018.
- In 2016, the Special Interim Committee on Redistricting, a bipartisan panel of legislators and citizens recommended the General Assembly pass a law to create a 9 member redistricting commission.
