Will Minorities Be Left Out of Voters' Redistricting Commission?

Hosted by

Sacramento has been paralyzed by partisanship, and Republicans and Democrats have kept it that way. In 2003, they drew up their own district boundaries, to make sure that elections made no change from Democrat to Republican or vice versa. It worked almost perfectly. But two years ago, voters said they'd had enough and passed Proposition 11, giving the re-districting power to an independent commission. Now it's time for that commission to be selected so it can draw new districts based on this year's census
