COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Republicans have passed a revised version of a state legislative district plan, voting on Saturday to send the plan to the Ohio Supreme Court for review and possible approval.

The maps, approved by a party-line vote for the May primary election, favor Republicans to win 57 of 99 House districts and 20 of 33 Senate districts. The proportion of seats, 58%, is similar to a plan the Ohio Supreme Court identified as unconstitutional in its order striking the previous set down earlier this month for disproportionately favoring Republicans.
