A tri-partisan move to minimize politics in redistrictingby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
It's an issue that always gets lots of heat at the at the state Capitol. It crops up when it's time to redraw Minnesota's political map. That time is coming, and a tri-partisan group of former state lawmakers -- one each from the Republican, DFL, and Independence parties -- wants to change the way redistricting is done. Today, the group will call for a commission of retired judges to take over the job.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with former Republican House Speaker Steve Sviggum who is among those in the tri-partisan group.
