Thayer Dislikes House Redistricting Map

Count Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer among those who don’t care for the House redistricting plan introduced Monday in the House. The Scott County Republican expressed his discontent with the proposal on the Senate floor today…

"My hometown of Georgetown has been split in three...you can walk within a block of the courthouse downtown and have three different representatives...which seems to be in defiance of the 'communities of interest' provision when considering redistricting." - Damon Thayer 

Thayer concedes there’s little the Senate can do about the House redistricting proposal except complain, so that’s what he’s doing.
