Bill Filed To Double Number of Legislators

State Representative Ryan Dvorak of South Bend has introduced a constitutional amendment that would double the size of the Indiana House from 100 members to 200. That would make it the third-largest state legislative chamber in the country.

Dvorak argues the smaller the districts, the harder they’d be to gerrymander. And he says House districts have twice as many people as they did after World War Two.

The proposal hasn’t yet been scheduled for a hearing and the measure would die for the year if it’s not discussed by Tuesday.
