Members of the California Citizens Redistricting Commission at one of their first meetings.

California voters passed Prop. 11 as a way to stop political gerrymandering. The measure took the drawing of legislative districts out of the hands of lawmakers, and instead put it into the hands of a bipartisan organization called the Citizens Redistricting Commission. But that group is already under fire for alleged political bias -- and its work is not yet underway.

Host: Scott Shafer

Guests:

  • Connie Galambos Malloy, commissioner with the California Citizens Redistricting Commission
  • Robert Stern, president of the Center for Governmental Studies
  • Steve Maviglio, Democratic political consultant
  • Vincent Barabba, commissioner with the California Citizens Redistricting Commission

More info:

We talk with two commissioners about these claims, and about the state of California's redistricting effort.
