House Sends Reapportionment Overhaul To 2015 Ballot

A bipartisan plan to revamp the legislative mapmaking process will go before voters in next year's general election after the House approved Senate revisions Wednesday to a plan hashed out in the lower chamber two weeks ago.

The House voted 81-7 to advance the reapportionment resolution (HJR 12*), easily reaching the three-fifths majority needed to ask voters to ratify the proposed constitutional amendment.
