TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal says his chamber’s Redistricting Committee will take a quick vote on a plan for redrawing state Senate districts.
O’Neal scheduled a vote on the plan for Monday evening. O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican, is the committee’s chairman.
The House broke at least several decades of tradition last week by not accepting a plan for redrawing the 40 Senate districts that senators had approved.
Instead, the House is considering a Senate redistricting plan favored by conservative Republicans and narrowly rejected by the Senate.
GOP conservatives, who have a House majority, say the map approved by the Senate is designed to keep its moderate GOP leaders in power.
The House committee is reviewing a plan that critics say is aimed at giving conservatives control of the Senate.
