Ohio Senate to vote on new gerrymandering plan

COLUMBUS, OH (WTOL) - The Ohio senate is expected to vote on a new plan to tackle gerrymandering congressional districts in Ohio on Monday.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that a bipartisan group of lawmakers have reached a deal that would put a proposal on the May ballot.

Among other changes, the proposal would initially require 50 percent of the minority party in each chamber to approve a map for 10 years.

After the senate will votes on Monday, the house is expected to do the same Tuesday morning.
