The National Redistricting Action Fund (backed by former Attorney General Eric Holder) has challenged Ohio's congressional map in the state supreme court for violating Article XIX of the state's constitution that prohibits the state legislature from enacting a new congressional plan that "unduly favors or disfavors a political party or its incumbents."
Who controls redistricting in Ohio in 2021?
Republicans fully control the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn by the Republican state legislature and enacted by three-fifths of each chamber. If the legislature fails to pass a map, redistricting falls to a bipartisan commission made up of statewide elected officials and state legislators. If the commission fails to enact a map, a new map may be passed by a simple majority of each chamber and signed into law by the Republican governor, but that map is valid for only four years.
