(MISSOURINET) –  The Missouri Senate has unanimously rejected the House’s request to negotiate changes to a Congressional redistricting plan.

The move means the Senate’s version of the bill passed last week will go back to the House for members to decide if they want to pass the Senate bill.

Governor Parson says he’s disappointed the Legislature has not yet passed a new redistricting plan.

Both the House and Senate versions keep 6 Republican-leaning districts and two Democratic ones.

They both vary in shape and population size.
