State Rep. Ann Bollin today issued the following statement after the Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission voted to drop its appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and pay more than $1.7 million to settle the cost of attorney fees:

“The redistricting commission has been treating our tax dollars like Monopoly money. It’s about time this saga of waste and negligence comes to an end.

“From their sloppy work that violated the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution to their stubborn insistence on fighting a losing battle in court, the redistricting commission has demonstrated a profound lack of accountability and fiscal responsibility. After a costly legal battle, today’s $1.7 million settlement is a bitter reminder of their gross mismanagement. It’s a shame that Michigan taxpayers will bear the burden of their mistakes and inefficiency.”
