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.

Andy Chow

School districts have spent years preparing to implement the education standards known as Common Core -- which are set to start this coming school year. Now House Republicans are renewing their efforts to repeal the standards. The bill could be on the fast track to the House floor.

Republican Representative Andy Thompson of Marietta has been a vocal critic of the Common Core standards which were developed by a group of state education leaders from around the country.
