Some Push for Changing Md.'s Redistricting Process

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Maryland's congressional redistricting process in 2011 reflected a common theme in many states: There isn't much preventing a political party that controls state government from drawing the state's congressional map to its benefit.

In heavily Democratic Maryland, some lawmakers and government watchdog groups are pushing to make the process more balanced.

Republican Sen. Allan Kittleman of Howard County proposes a constitutional amendment to create a new process. Other supporters of reforms say there are models in other states that seek to make the process more balanced.

No action has been taken on the measure, and the legislative session ends April 7.
