State senators call for redistricting changes

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wisconsin (WKOW) -- Two state senators are calling for a non-partisan commission to take charge of redistricting in Wisconsin.

Sen. Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center) and Senator Tim Cullen (D-Janesville) held a public meeting on the subject Monday.

The Wisconsin legislature is currently in charge of drawing the state's electoral maps.

Cullen and Schultz said they believe the public would be better-served by a commission without political leanings. The neighboring state of Iowa uses a nonpartisan commission to oversee redistricting.
