Redistricting Watch: Cosponsors Update

Yesterday, three more Democratic centrists signed on as cosponsors to H.R. 2642, the Fairness and Independence in Redistricting Act. This brings the total number of cosponsors t0 35 (the others are listed here and here). The bill's new backers are Reps. Ellen Tauscher (CA-10), Mike Ross (AR-4) and George Miller (CA-7). Zach Wamp remains, for now, the sole Republican cosponsor of the bill, but that will hopefully change in the near future.
