State Reps. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) and Mike Curtin (D-Marble Cliff) released the following statements in response to today’s presentation on Senate Joint Resolution 2 (SJR 2), congressional redistricting reform, at the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission.


Rep. Kathleen Clyde:


“I am encouraged by the presentation today of SJR 2, congressional redistricting reform, before the Legislative and Executive Branch Committee of the Constitutional Modernization Committee,” said Clyde. “Ohio needs comprehensive redistricting reform so officials at the state and federal levels will be more accountable to voters. I'm confident that the minor differences between our resolution, HJR 2, and the Senate's SJR 2 can be worked out and a compromise plan passed.”


Rep. Mike Curtin:


“The voters will soon decide whether to reform how we draw state districts. If they agree with the General Assembly to make this needed change, we should immediately follow up with a proposal to apply the same common sense changes to how we draw congressional districts,” said Curtin. “I will continue to work with the Constitutional Modernization Commission to advance a proposal in the coming months.”
