LANSING, Mich. – Today, Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court determined that federal courts will not have a role in lawsuits regarding gerrymandered political maps:
“Now that we know that the U.S. Supreme Court won’t intervene to redraw lines, it’s even more of a good thing that Michigan voters put an end to partisan gerrymandering at the ballot box last November. Because voters made the right call, we will have fairly drawn maps by the next time the Michigan Senate is up for reelection. Other states should follow our lead.”
