Michigan Republican Delegation Statement on Redistricting Panel
Washington, April 8, 2021
Today, the Republicans in the Michigan Congressional Delegation released the following joint statement regarding the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Panel hiring Bruce Adelson to serve as its independent legal counsel.
“From its inception, the redistricting committee was designed to be a nonpartisan body to reevaluate how legislative districts are drawn in Michigan. Hiring an advisor that has directly donated to Democrats, especially the Secretary of State who has been providing guidance to the committee, removes any sense of objectivity and impartiality.”
The statement is attributed to U.S. Representatives Jack Bergman, Bill Huizenga, Peter Meijer, John Moolenaar, Fred Upton, Tim Walberg, and Lisa McClain.
