Action Alert! SF 86 Might Be Rolled into an Omnibus Bill!

Hello WANDAs! This is SERIOUS.
Rep. Anderson’s HF 314 (http://tinyurl.com/jt5bwrs) & Sen. Kiffmeyer’s SF86 (http://tinyurl.com/hk8kdkl) bills limit redistricting to legislators alone with no room for an independent redistricting commission.
MN hasn’t had major issues of gerrymandering BECAUSE THE COURT HAS USED AN INDEPENDENT REDISTRICTING COMMISSION AND NOT BECAUSE LEGISLATORS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CURTAIL SELF-INTERESTS IN DRAWING DISTRICT LINES.
This has been the case for the past several decades except for 1970. Now, the Senate Finance Committee will be hearing SF 86 for inclusion in the Finance Omnibus Bill…
Please join us in calling the three key Senators who lead the Finance Committee and voice your opposition to this Gerrymandering Bill and it’s inclusion in an Omnibus Bill… Also, please join us in calling/ emailing Gov. Mark Dayton TODAY. Let him know your concerns. Ask: Will you veto a bill containing language allowing only legislators to draw district lines leaving Minnesotans at risk for gerrymandered outcomes? (After you thank him for being so awesome! We LOVE our Gov!)
Contact for Gov. Dayton: 651-201-3400.

Also, if your Senator is another member on the committee – give them a call as well… find out here: https://www.senate.mn/committees/committee_bio.php…
As always, be kind and thank the Senator/ aide for their time!
Up and at ’em and to the phones!!
