Redistricting initiative filed in Utah
The redistricting initiative is sponsored by a group called the "Fair Boundaries Coalition." Its official sponsors are Mark Sage, Tania Knauer, Catherine Millicent Shaw Lewis, Mary Jo Bishop and Cynthia J. Bias-Thompson.
House Speaker David Clark has indicated he will be active in dialogue on the issue. He chairs a 50-state redistricting committee for the National Conference of State Legislatures and generally prefers to have the Utah State Legislature continue to draw the state's legislative boundaries, as it currently does.
Most of the leading sponsors of the initiative are Democrats.
