“Lawmakers Ponder New Redistricting Methods”

CBS Miami:

Oliva, who is set to take over as speaker of the House after the 2018 elections, said in the wake of the failed session that he was ready to consider an independent redistricting commission that would recommend maps to the Legislature. The House and Senate also failed to agree on a congressional redistricting plan during an August special session.

“I’m for looking into it, because I certainly think that we need to have maps that aren’t disputed halfway into the next Census,” Oliva said.

At the same time, he pointed out some of the pitfalls for a commission.
