Sen. Moss Opposes Resolution to Allow Legislature to Intervene in Federal Gerrymandering Lawsuit

LANSING, Mich. – State Sen. Jeremy Moss (D–Southfield) today issued the following statement opposing Senate Resolution 6, which would allow the Michigan Legislature to file a motion to intervene in a federal lawsuit over Michigan’s political districts.

“For two terms in the State House, I introduced legislation to prevent the Legislature from influencing how our own district lines are drawn. And last November, voters overwhelmingly passed a proposal to prevent the Legislature from influencing how our own district lines are drawn. The Legislature has no business butting into this federal lawsuit because we shouldn’t be influencing how our own district lines are drawn.”

Sen. Moss previously introduced House Bill 4122 that would have created an independent redistricting commission. The bill was referred to the House Committee on Elections and Ethics and was never acted on.
