LANSING, Mich. – Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) released the following statement after the Michigan Supreme Court ruled to allow gerrymandering reform on the ballot:

“This is a big win for voters in Michigan. No one feels the repercussions of gerrymandering more than those of us in the Senate – we are one of the most sliced and diced legislative bodies in this country and constituents across the state suffer because of it. Now voters get to decide to put an end to Republicans fixing the game.”
