State Sends Several Congressional District Map Proposals To State Supreme Court

February 16, 2018
By

Thursday’s deadline for state lawmakers and the Governor to submit replacements for the state’s Congressional district map has passed, and if one of the several options offered the state Supreme Court is not chosen, the court will produce one of its own.

Harrisburg news sources say Democrat and Republican lawmakers were both submitting proposals – including one each by House and Senate Democrats – and, of course, Democratic Governor Tom Wolf had been working on his own map after telling Republican leaders their map was still a classic example of gerrymandering.  The Governor’s proposal was submitted just minutes before Thursday’s midnight deadline.

Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman told Radio PA News the Governor declined an invitation to join Republicans in asking for an extension in which to craft a bipartisan proposal.

Corman added, if the high court produces its own map, Republicans would most likely challenge it in federal court.
