2018 Legislation

Here's a general report from the Indianapolis Star on the 2018 Legislative Session

Of particular note is their failure to act on redistricting reform:

"Advocates pushed for the creation of an independent redistricting commission, instead of leaving the map drawing up to the General Assembly. But even milder redistricting reform couldn't make it through the legislature.

Rep. Milo Smith, the chair of the House Elections and Apportionment committee, wouldn't give a hearing to the milder proposals in Senate Bill 326, effectively killing it. Instead Smith said he is in support of a resolution to study redistricting reform over the summer."
