    It really is a shame that Washington has the sort of commission it does rather than a truly independent one like California. You end up with both parties essentially protecting their incumbents and stifling competition. I also like that you took the effort to draw single member house districts, and although my personal preference is unicameralism, it seems stupid to have the same electoral districts yet one chamber elects one per district and the other elects two. That might as well be welfare for politicians. At the very least they could put everyone in one chamber and make the three representatives elected by single transferable vote as some other developed democracies do.
