Re-redistricting in the news

This report begins: ” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) is introducing legislation that would block states from rearranging their congressional districts until after a 10-year Census takes place, a reaction to the Supreme Court ruling striking down a key portion of the Voting Rights Act.”

Michael McDonald and I discussed mid-decade redrawing of district lines after the last Texas re-redistricting.  In most states, there are fewer clear existing legal barriers to this than conventional wisdom suggests.
