Topics: 1. Redistricting 2. My Bills 3.  More on the SIP 4. The Hope of Easter 1. Redistricting continues to be the hottest topic under the Gold Dome. The Republicans offered maps with minimal changes to the existing congressional districts and then offered to start with a blank map and build one together, in public hearings, with the Democrats. The Democrats offered a radical change to all of the districts and have refused to do anything of substance in public hearings. It is starting to look ... Full Story
