Ohio Redistricting Commission Set to Begin Work Again

Uncertainty in maps, legal process continues

Two years on from the first attempt at congressional and statehouse redistricting in Ohio, a commission of elected officials is set to begin again next month. The Ohio Redistricting Commission announced it will meet on Sept. 13 "for organizational purposes and to begin the process of drafting a General Assembly redistricting plan," according to an official release.

The leaders of the commission are different than the first time around, with Republican state Rep. Jeff LaRe and Democratic Senate Minority Leader Nickie Antonio standing in as co-chairs.

LaRe replaced former House Speaker Bob Cupp, and Antonio is taking over for Democratic state Sen. Vernon Sykes.
