OKLAHOMA CITY – House Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka, issued the following statement today in response to the Oklahoma Supreme Court striking down Initiative Petition 420 concerning redistricting:

“This proposal has been misleading and overly-complicated from day one, and we are pleased the court recognized that by striking it down. The proposal is a solution in search of a problem given that courts have never found impermissible gerrymandering to have occurred in Oklahoma. We are continuing to move forward with the House’s proven redistricting process that involves the entire state, strictly adheres to the law and won bipartisan praise when last used a decade ago.” – House Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka
