State GOP Leaders Ask U.S. Supreme Court To Block New PA Congressional District Map

February 22, 2018

State Republican legislative leaders are asking the United States Supreme Court for an emergency stay to block the implementation of the new Congressional district map for Pennsylvania handed down on Monday by the state Supreme Court.

Radio PA News reports that House Speaker Mike Turzai and Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati both continue to insist that the state court does not hold the authority to draw Congressional district lines.

Earlier this month, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito denied the lawmakers’ request for an emergency stay to prevent the state court from drawing the map.  This followed the submission of map proposals from both state political parties and the Wolf Administration.

Turzai says there is new information for the federal court to consider.
