    While the Supreme Court of the United States considers redistricting cases from North Carolina and Virginia, the Virginia House Democratic Caucus is calling for the creation of a nonpartisan redistricting commission to be allowed a floor vote in the House of Delegates during the upcoming 2017 legislative session.

    "In the past, non-partisan redistricting legislation has passed the Senate of Virginia, only to die a vote-less death in a House committee. We are asking House Republican leadership for the simple act of allowing floor debate and vote on a nonpartisan redistricting commission that will end unconstitutional gerrymandering this session," said Delegate David Toscano, House Democratic Leader.
