Meier's Senate seat could be in jeopardy again

Feb 27, 2012

The Chairman of a Committee redrawing state legislative districts admits he is not pleased with a House Amendment that preserved the seat of a State Senator from Goshen and Platte Counties.  Senate Corporations and Political Subdivisions Chairman Cale Case says he may try and remove that amendment. "That long strip that goes up along the Nebraska border and captures the prison and puts it down with a district in Cheyenne -- we are legitimately open to a little criticism on that and I will probably try and remove that in the Senate," Case said. That amendment keeps Senator Curt Meier from getting pushed into the same Senate District as current Senator Wayne Johnson.  Case says there is probably no other way they could draw the lines to protect Meier’s seat.
