Pushback to the 2018 Missouri redistricting citizens’ initiative

The Springfield News-Leader reports:

Last fall, Missouri voters approved a one-of-a-kind plan to root out partisan gerrymandering with 62 percent of the vote.

Republicans unhappy with the changes are now trying to roll them back.

Five GOP lawmakers, including Senate President Pro Tem Dave Schatz, R-Sullivan, are proposing new modifications to the state constitution that would downplay or eliminate the new standards for “partisan fairness” and “competitiveness” when drawing legislative districts.
