Missouri Democratic Party statement on Missouri House passage of Clean Missouri rollback.

Kansas City, Mo. (April 29, 2019) – Tonight the Missouri House passed House Joint Resolutions to put before the voters a rollback of the very redistricting reforms they passed last November.

Lauren Gepford, Executive Director of the Missouri Democratic Party released the following statement:

“Missouri Republicans obviously fear the redistricting reforms voters approved by a wide margin last year. They suspect they can’t maintain the size of their majority without gerrymandering. This is yet another example of the Republican majority in the legislature asserting that they know better than the people of Missouri. Members of the Missouri Senate, where the proposal now heads, should tread carefully because Clean Missouri passed in every single Senate district last November, including receiving more than 70% of the vote in the Republican Floor Leader’s Senate district.”
