Peters Statement on Supreme Court Redistricting Ruling

WASHINGTON, DCU.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on gerrymandering that will impact the redrawing of Michigan’s state legislative and Congressional district boundaries:

“I am disappointed in today’s decision. Following the 2010 Census, the Michigan state legislature drew what has been widely regarded as some of the most gerrymandered districts in the country. Politicians shouldn’t be able to pick their own voters, and Michiganders spoke loud and clear last November that the current redistricting process is in desperate need of reform. I have confidence that the Citizens Redistricting Commission will use the 2020 Census to create fairer districts and representation that reflects the will of voters.”
