There are high hopes on opening day of the 2020 Indiana legislative session, as IFCL participates in a press conference at the statehouse for Sen. John Ruckelshaus-R, District 30 to introduce his twin bills for redistricting transparency and for an independent redistricting commission.
Sen. Ruckelshaus and Sen. Tim Lanane-D, District 25, each spoke about this bipartisan legislation. Ten other legislators were present in support of the bills.
Then a crowd of approximately 40-50 looked on as legislators publicly signed the End Gerrymandering Pledge. Two Quakers signaled their approval.
Bill numbers will be shared when they are assigned.
