LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A state senator who sought to change Nebraska's process for drawing congressional and legislative districts says he won't challenge Gov. Pete Ricketts' veto of his bill.
Republican Sen. John Murante of Gretna said Tuesday he won't try to override Ricketts because of the GOP governor's arguments that the bill was unconstitutional.
The bill would have created a bipartisan redistricting commission to draw the state's political boundaries. Nebraska's current system requires a legislative committee to propose new maps once every decade, after the census.
