Utah has adopted a redistricting plan with a 4th Congressional District, complete with gerrymandering to protect incumbents, just in case the House approves a plan to add two seats that is not currently on the agenda. Now that’s initiative.

  1. As near as I can tell Utah has been crafty in this. They aren’t linking their 4 seat redistricting to the DC plan, but have it separate. If it can be passed separately, great for them. If it is done as part of the package deal, ok.

    Of course this all sidesteps the question of if DC having a voting representation is such a good idea, why not get an amendment passed to allow it.
