The Constitutional Modernization Commission had looked at various options for improving redistricting, a process that’s generally blamed for creating legislative and congressional districts that favor one party over another.
The panel was very close to bringing a plan forward. But now, two new bills have surfaced. Republican Representative Matt Huffman is the sponsor of these new plans.
One of Cincinnati's most storied political figures has died. According to family, William L. Mallory Sr. died peacefully Tuesday morning following an illness. He was 82.
Former Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory says his father could find inspiration in almost anything.
"He would be inspired by a thought, by a vision, by a natural landscape, and this would cause him to take on something new," says Mallory. "Sometimes it was poetry, sometimes it was legislation, sometimes it was activism... he was a deeply spiritual man."
