Regarding “Senate takes up GOP plan to upend Clean Missouri’s redistricting model” (Jan. 29): Thank you for this story about how Republican legislators are trying to overturn the Clean Missouri amendment. I am appalled that politicians would try to undo a measure that the voters passed by almost a 2-1 margin. How is it a democracy if the legislators can ignore the clear will of the people? Please keep reporting on this issue.
