Pass S.341: Amendment to SC Const. Addressing Redistricting

This petition had 902 supporters

Senate Minority Leader Sen. Nikki Setzler, D-West Columbia, introduced a bill Wednesday that would create an independent panel under the inspector general's office that would draw a new map for congressional districts, as well as those for the S.C. House and Senate. That map would then be put before the public for a vote. 

According to legislative experts, this bill is NOT likely to come to the full Senate without pressure from constituents. This is not a Democratic issue, this is a political issue and we should be able to choose our politicians, not politicians choosing us by picking their own districts.
