provide qualifications for commission members, including limitations on their political
require the Legislature to enact or reject a commission-recommended plan; and
establish requirements for redistricting plans and authorize lawsuits to block implementation
of a redistricting plan enacted by the Legislature that fails to conform to those requirements?
