PLRC Passes Another Unconstitutional Plan

On June 8th, 2012, the LRC voted to approve an amended redistricting plan that still contains dozens of unnecessary splits in municipalities.

As plaintiff Amanda Holt told the Associated Press following the vote, “It doesn’t seem like our Constitution is really being put first in this process.”
