CLC files testimony in New Hampshire supporting bill creating an independent redistricting commission

CLC filed written testimony to the New Hampshire Senate Committee on Election Law and Municipal Affairs in support of House Bill 706, a bill establishing an independent redistricting commission (“IRC”) in New Hampshire. CLC argues that the bill is constitutional under federal and New Hampshire law, the transparency requirements are good public policy, and the commission is unlikely to produce gerrymandered districts because the commission must reach consensus to approve a map.
