Republican Lawmakers Will Submit Redistricting Proposal To Commission

Republican state lawmakers will be unveiling their proposal for new state House and Senate district maps at Thursday's Ohio Redistricting Commission meeting.

Republican leaders in the Ohio House and Ohio Senate have been working behind the scenes on a new state legislative district map for the 99 seats in the Ohio House and 33 seats in the Ohio Senate.

Senate President Matt Huffman says he's looked over the maps with Democratic leaders, and believes they're close to a compromise.

"When you look at it in some specific locations some of the districts are either identical, or largely the same. It's just sort of like 'well do you wanna go this way, or do you wanna go that way' and it works out the same."

The commission is expected to adopt the Republican proposal as their rough draft, then amend the map after three public hearings.
