State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) issued the following statement in response to the Ohio House today passing Senate Joint Resolution 5, bipartisan legislation that puts a constitutional amendment before voters in May to restrict congressional gerrymandering in the state:


“The redistricting plan put forward in Senate Joint Resolution 5, while not perfect, is an important step towards districts that better reflect Ohio. Citizens of Ohio deserve fair districts. Voters should choose their representatives. When we have fair districts, the people of Ohio will likely have more problems solved and less partisanship. SJR 5 is a start for the voters to have a stronger voice in our republic.”
