Oregon moving against prison gerrymandering
by Aleks Kajstura, March 24, 2015
This afternoon in Oregon, the state’s Senate Committee on Rules will hold a work session that will include a discussion of SB 331, a bill to end prison gerrymandering.
The committee has already received testimony supporting the bill from numerous organizations when it held a public hearing earlier this month.
Several people also testified in person, including two of the bill’s sponsors, with Senator Shields pointing out that “since we’ve a little bit of distance between redistricting this might be the exact opportune time to take this on”. I hope the committee agrees.
