CONSTITUTION ARTICLE III, Section 5
Adopted: November 26, 1980 by a popular vote of 414,907 in favor and 203,837 against.
“ Common Cause believes the legislature should go a step further and substantially reform the entire reapportionment process. The Common Cause model proposal has three main elements-strict anti-gerrymandering standards; non-partisan reapportionment commission and prompt judicial review.”
--Betty Gallo, Executive Director of Common Cause, testifying at a Government Administration & Elections Committee public hearing on February 19, 1980.
