States with veto-proof majorities

There is an increase in the number of states where one party or the other has a veto-proof majority in the state legislature.  To the extent that this represents the will of the people and not just creative legislative redistricting, I think this is a good thing, not a bad thing.   It means the states can be laboratories to test the ideas represented by the respective parties.

Hat tip to The American Conservative.
