Rob Bishop quits redistricting committee- no replacement to be made.

Speaker Wilson Responds to Commissioner Rob Bishop’s Resignation from the Utah Independent Redistricting Commission

Speaker Brad Wilson issued the following statement:

“I appreciate Congressman Bishop’s willingness to serve on the Independent Redistricting Commission over these past several months. I share his frustrations with how the commission has conducted its business. His decision to step down at this point in the process is further evidence that the duly elected representatives of the people are best suited to redraw district boundaries, as the courts have repeatedly affirmed. As we expect to receive and review maps from the commission in just over a week, I do not intend to appoint a replacement.”

Maps are in ink and Wilson says “Legislature may reevaluate redistricting process”

Utah House Majority Leader Francis Gibson says he’s resigning effective November
