Rose’s Johnson on new California maps


A June 7th article at Roll Call quoted Rose Institute Fellow Doug Johnson on the effects that the proposed new maps would have on California’s political world.

Johnson says that the new maps could cause a “continuing trend of retirements” and “a number of state legislators challenging [Congressional] incumbents.” He concludes, “It is certainly a much more open and independent process than the Legislature doing it itself…Everyone will be watching closely to see how the commission operates.”
