Legislation changing aspects of the voter-approved initiative creating an independent redistricting commission for Utah has cleared its first test.

Senate Bill Two-Hundred passed the Senate Business and Labor Committee on a unanimous vote.

The bill loosens some restrictions from Proposition Four.

The seven-member redistricting commission would create new congressional and legislative district maps and would remain independent.

However, the Legislature could vote whether to accept those maps.
