State Rep. Joe Miller (D-Amherst) issued a statement today after the Redistricting Commission failed to meet its constitutional duty to release, hold three hearings on, and adopt a state legislative district map by Sept. 1. Even though other maps have been presented to the Commission, the Commission itself has neither produced nor worked on one, and co-chair Speaker Bob Cupp (R-Lima) has not given a date that the Commission will propose a map for review.
“As legislators, we took an oath to uphold the constitution. Ohioans have spoken, a deadline was set. Where are the maps?” said Rep. Miller.
The Commission met yesterday but adjourned without scheduling its next meeting.
