State’s Rights

The provision in the state constitution should be allowed to control the redistricting process, he has argued, regardless of its impact on voters. So, come November, the individual elected in House District 115 will represent 13,505 people while the individual elected in House District 6 will represent 46,182 people. Given the choice between one-person, one vote and state’s rights, our Secretary of State chose state’s rights. Same song conservatives have been singing since 1875; just a different verse.
