LINCOLN — A state lawmaker is trying again to take politics out of the job of drawing up voting districts for the U.S. House and the Nebraska Legislature.
State Sen. Russ Karpisek of Wilber said the Cornhusker State should utilize a redistricting process similar to that in Iowa, where members of an independent commission rather than elected lawmakers draw up new district boundaries following each U.S. Census.
