CHAIR KREISS-TOMKINS  announced that the first  order of business                                                               
would be  SPONSOR SUBSTITUTE FOR  HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION  NO. 26,                                                               
Proposing amendments to  the Constitution of the  State of Alaska                                                               
relating  to  the membership  and  actions  of the  Redistricting                                                               
Board and  relating to district boundaries  and the establishment                                                               
of a nonpartisan statewide district map.

REPRESENTATIVE  LES  GARA,  Alaska State  Legislature,  as  prime                                                               
sponsor, presented SSHJR 26.   He noted that a proposed committee                                                               
substitute  (CS)  for  SSHJR 26,  Version  30-OS0155\N,  Bullard,                                                               
1/31/18  [included in  the committee  packet and  referred to  as                                                               
Version   N]   would   attempt   to   eliminate   politics   from                                                               
redistricting, which is  also referred to as  gerrymandering.  He                                                               
said that roughly  ten states have adopted  a non-partisan method                                                               
of  drawing district  lines  so  as not  to  favor  one party  or                                                               
another.   He  maintained that  both parties  have tried  to take                                                               
advantage of the redistricting process.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
3:22:49 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
JUSTIN  LEVITT,   Professor,  Loyola  Law  School,   relayed  his                                                               
experience in the  field of redistricting and voting  rights.  He                                                               
testified that  he agrees  with Representative  Gara's assessment                                                               
that neither  party has a  monopoly on abusing  the redistricting                                                               
process when  possible.  He  stated that in most  states, sitting                                                               
legislators  draw  both  their   own  district  lines  and  where                                                               
applicable, districts  of members of  Congress.  He said  that it                                                               
is often legislative leadership  that wields redistricting power,                                                               
not the  "rank and file" legislators.   He reported that  in many                                                               
states,  leadership  is at  least  tempted  to use  redistricting                                                               
power as a cudgel against both  members of the opposing party and                                                               
occasionally against members of their own party.                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
MR.  LEVITT  continued  by  saying that  the  process  is  rarely                                                               
transparent; because  redistricting can be very  personal when it                                                               
is  pursued  as an  exercise  in  raw  partisan power,  it  often                                                               
appears  to be  overflowing with  ill will,  creating significant                                                               
conflict   among  legislators   that   carries   over  into   the                                                               
legislative sessions.   He maintained that when  this happens, it                                                               
creates  substantial  cynicism  among  the public,  even  if  the                                                               
process  did not  actually put  personal  and partisan  interests                                                               
ahead of  the public interest.   He  said that in  his experience                                                               
and in  the experience of many  other redistricting commentators,                                                               
it often  appears to the  public eye  that the system  is rigged,                                                               
that is,  members exercising  the power granted  to the  state to                                                               
act on behalf  of all its constituents but  exercising that power                                                               
to benefit just a few.                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
MR.  LEVITT  offered  his  belief  that  the  U.S.  is  the  only                                                               
industrialized  western  democracy  that allows  those  with  the                                                               
greatest potential  for conflict  of interest  to draw  their own                                                               
electoral  district lines.    He said  that  many countries  have                                                               
observed the  U.S. practice and  determined that they can  find a                                                               
better way.                                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
3:26:59 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
MR.  LEVITT relayed  that a  few states,  including Alaska,  have                                                               
taken  a   different  approach   to  drawing   state  legislative                                                               
districts.  Connecticut  and Maine allow the  legislature to draw                                                               
redistricting lines  that have supermajority  requirements, which                                                               
can increase  the likelihood  of a more  bipartisan outcome.   He                                                               
reported  that   seven  states  -  Arkansas,   Colorado,  Hawaii,                                                               
Missouri, New  Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania  - have established                                                               
commissions  to  draw  redistricting   lines  but  allow  elected                                                               
officials  to serve  on  those commissions.    In most  instances                                                               
these  bodies are  also structured  in  a manner  designed to  be                                                               
bipartisan; therefore, they differ from  the legislature.  In two                                                               
other states  - Iowa  and New  York -  there are  advisory bodies                                                               
with   substantial  independence   from   the  legislature,   but                                                               
theoretically they are subject to  legislative override.  He said                                                               
that New  York's system is new  for the year 2020,  so it remains                                                               
to be seen how it will work.   Iowa's experience in the last four                                                               
decades shows that its independent  body substantially drives the                                                               
process and  has never been  overridden by the  legislature, even                                                               
though the legislature has that authority.                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
MR.  LEVITT   referred  to  several   other  states   -  Arizona,                                                               
California, Idaho, Montana, Washington, and  as of 1998, Alaska -                                                               
that  have   asked  commissions   with  substantial   amounts  of

These  states  are  often   considered  leaders  of  establishing

the list  varies from state  to state.   He said that  members of                                                               
the commissions  of these states  are precluded from  running for

the commission is  balanced in a bipartisan fashion.   He offered

the rough categories described,  there is substantial variance in

each works in  practice.  He added that some  of the systems work

Each  likely  could be  improved  -  sometimes incrementally  and

MR. LEVITT  maintained that he  firmly believes that there  is no                                                               
single correct "cookie  cutter" answer for every  state; there is

works  well for  Iowa but  would  not work  well for  California.                                                               
California's system works well for  California but is unnecessary                                                               
for Idaho.  Idaho's system works  well for Idaho but isn't likely                                                               
to work  well in New  York.  He  asserted that each  system, even                                                               
when  it  functions  well  for  its  own  state,  can  likely  be

MR. LEVITT  related that  the present system  in Alaska  has many

that the process  was improved in 1998, when  control passed from

expressed his belief  that Version N of SSHJR 26  would make even                                                               
greater  advancements to  the process.   At  present, Alaska  has

the 2000 and 2010 redistricting cycles.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MR.   LEVITT   said   that  in   theory,   appointment   to   the                                                               
reapportionment board  is to be  made without regard  to partisan

members of the reapportionment board  are themselves appointed by                                                               
officials elected  to political positions;  it is often  the case

MR. LEVITT  stated that Version  N would continue  Alaska's hardy                                                               
tradition of  a redistricting body distinct  from the legislature

measure   of  incremental   independence  by   precluding  former

neither.  He opined that  this would more closely approximate the                                                               
structure  of independent  commissions in  other states,  such as                                                               
Arizona, Idaho,  Montana, and Washington; he  noted the political                                                               
and partisan  diversity of this  group of  states.  He  opined it                                                               
would  strengthen the  measures of  incremental independence  and

He  offered  that there  is  a  fierce independent  streak  among

State  and  registered voters  who  have  voted  in each  of  the                                                               
previous four state general and  primary elections".  She offered                                                               
the scenario  of a  person selected  for the  board in  2017, who                                                               
would  have  had  to  have  voted  in  the  general  and  primary                                                               
elections in 2016 and 2014.   She suggested that some of the most                                                               
partisan people  are the ones  who vote in primaries;  she asked,                                                               
"If  you're actually  trying to  eliminate  partisanship ...  why                                                               
would you make voting in a primary mandatory?"                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  GARA  responded  that he  welcomes  an  amendment                                                               
eliminating "primary  elections."   He reiterated that  since the                                                               
two   Democrats  and   two   Republicans   would  appoint   three                                                               
independent  members who  will outnumber  them, the  independents                                                               
will  be the  power brokers,  and making  that change  should not                                                               
affect  the  outcome  of  creating  a  nonpartisan  redistricting                                                               
board.

MARGO WARING, League of Women  Voters of Juneau (LWVJ), testified                                                               
that the  League of  Women Voters (LWV)  has long  been concerned                                                               
with  reapportionment   and  redistricting  in  the   U.S.    She                                                               
mentioned   that   she  has   belonged   to   the  national   LWV                                                               
Redistricting Task  Force (RTF) for  the three years it  has been                                                               
in existence.  She relayed that  RTF has studied the structure of                                                               
redistricting  boards in  every state  and the  improvements that                                                               
states  have  made in  their  processes.    The RTF  developed  a                                                               
position  on  redistricting, which  is  now  held  by LWV.    She                                                               
expressed  that she  supports  Representative  Gara's efforts  to                                                               
devise  a fair  way  to  redistrict Alaska  and  asked for  House                                                               
support.                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MS. WARING  said that Alaska's  redistricting process  has always                                                               
been  contentious.   She  relayed  the  following history:    The                                                               
Alaska  State   Constitution  originally  made   redistricting  a                                                               
function   of   the   governor;   the   [Alaska]   constitutional                                                               
convention,  reacting  to  the problems  other  states  had  with                                                               
conducting reapportionment in a  timely and fair manner, selected                                                               
the governor  model.   In 1964, the  U.S. Supreme  Court affirmed                                                               
the  rule of  one person  one vote.   The  redistricting maps  of                                                               
1970, 1980,  and 1990 were found  by the Alaska Supreme  Court to                                                               
be  unconstitutional.   In 1998,  the legislature  initiated, and                                                               
the public  narrowly supported the  creation of  Alaska's current                                                               
five-member  redistricting  board,  in   which  two  members  are                                                               
appointed by the  governor, one by the Speaker of  the House, one                                                               
by the  President of the Senate,  and one by the  chief justice -                                                               
all "without regard to political  affiliation."  She offered that                                                               
these words imply  that the board would  be nonpartisan; however,                                                               
in practice, nonpartisanship was not  achieved.  The maps of 2000                                                               
and 2010 were challenged in court,  and portions were found to be                                                               
unconstitutional.  The criteria cited  in the Alaska Constitution                                                               
are that  districts be  nearly equal in  population and  that one                                                               
senate  district encompass  two house  districts.   The districts                                                               
are  to be  compact  and contiguous;  they  should be  integrated                                                               
socioeconomically as  much as possible;  and attention  should be                                                               
paid to  local government boundaries  and geographic  features as                                                               
much as possible.                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
MS.  WARING  opined  that  the  theme of  this  history  is  that                                                               
Alaskans,  aware   of  the  possibilities  of   partisanship  and                                                               
gerrymandering  and desirous  of a  nonpartisan apportionment  of                                                               
districts,  have, since  statehood, favored  approaches that  are                                                               
fair; they support the one person  one vote rule; and they do not                                                               
allow legislators to pick their  own voters.  She maintained that                                                               
Alaska has  yet to achieve this  goal.  She expressed  her belief                                                               
that Representative Gara's  effort to achieve this goal  is to be                                                               
commended.    Representative  Gara   has  studied  a  variety  of                                                               
approaches and  selected one that  can work for Alaska,  one that                                                               
provides the  kind of fair redistricting  process consistent with                                                               
the  concept of  one person  one vote,  and one  in which  voters                                                               
select legislators rather than legislators select voters.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
3:54:04 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR KREISS-TOMKINS announced that SSHJR 26 would be held over.
