An effort to remove partisanship from the process of redrawing New Hampshire’s legislative districts is closer to becoming law.
Both the Democratically-controlled House and Senate have passed similar bills to create a 15-member independent commission to redraw districts, over the objections of Republicans who argued the Legislature shouldn’t outsource its responsibilities. The Senate on Thursday approved a bipartisan amendment to the House version that would give lawmakers more control over appointing the commission members.
