CLC and Voters Not Politicians Protect Michigan's IRC
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – In a decision yesterday, U.S. District Court Judge Janet Neff denied motions filed by the Michigan Republican Party and special interests seeking to block Michigan’s voter-initiated Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission. Campaign Legal Center (CLC) is representing Voters Not Politicians in the case.
“We are proud to be protecting Michigan’s voter-approved Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission alongside Voters Not Politicians,” said Paul Smith, vice president at CLC. “The court was right to reject the attempt by the plaintiffs to use the courts to thwart the will of the people.”
“Michigan voters amended our state Constitution to establish an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission and bring fair maps to Michigan,” said Nancy Wang, executive director of Voters Not Politicians. “The application process to serve on the Commission opened on October 24, and thousands of Michiganders have already applied.”
