A plan is taking shape to consider putting a citizen commission in charge of redrawing legislative district boundaries in Indiana, a change that lawmakers and others say would make the process less political. Members of a special committee created to study the issue have started discussing how such a commission would work, The (Northwest Indiana) Times reported (http://bit.ly/2csFzWx ). The committee is expected to endorse a plan at its final meeting Oct. 17. It would still need to be approved by the General Assembly.
