FAIR REPRESENTATION -- THE CONGRESSIONAL BILL

     A bill introduced last year in Congress proposes several measures that would allow Congressmen to REPRESENT.US.

H.R. 3057 IS "A bill to establish the use of ranked choice voting in 
    elections for Representatives in Congress, to require each State 
    with more than one Representative to establish multi-member 
    congressional districts, to require States to conduct 
    congressional redistricting through independent commissions, and 
    for other purposes; to the Committee on the Judiciary, and in 
    addition to the Committee on House Administration, for a period to 
    be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for 
    consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction 
    of the committee concerned."

The bill was introduced by Democratic Congressmen Don Beyer of Virginia but has received bi-partisan backing from such sources as National Review and the New York Times.
