Entry Description
STATEHOUSE—House Bill (HB) 1032, authored by State Representative Jerry Torr (R-Carmel), passed out of the House today with a 77 to 20 vote. HB 1032 changes the current redistricting procedures. 


“I’m very pleased that HB 1032 passed out of the House today,” said Rep. Torr. “This bill is designed to keep politics out of the redistricting process, and I think it is well past time to make this change for Indiana.” 


HB 1032 establishes a redistricting commission to create, hold hearings on, take public comment about and recommend plans to redraw General Assembly districts and congressional districts following the national census every ten years. 
The proposed commission would have four members, each appointed by the leaders of their respective legislative caucus. The four commission members would then appoint a fifth member to chair the commission, but in the case that there is a deadlock and a fifth member cannot be agreed upon, the Chief Justice of the Indiana Supreme Court would make the appointment. 
Commission members would be required, during a redistricting year, to hold one public hearing in each U.S. Congressional district in Indiana, plus an additional meeting in Marion County. Public notice would be required 10 days prior to each meeting. 
The bill will now be heard in the Senate. To track this bill’s progress, visit https://iga.in.gov/legislative/2014/bills/house/1032. />
