In late January, the Supreme Court ruled 4-3 to remand a proposed redistricting map back to the Legislative Reapportionment Commission, citing an excessive number of municipal divisions as their reason for sending it back to lawmakers.
Then, in April, the LRC passed a new preliminary map that again drew the ire of many – from Democrats who claimed the map unfairly disadvantaged them, to Latino Lines spokespersons who saw the new map as insufficient in reflecting the growth of Pa.’s Hispanic population, and even Republicans who thought it disadvantaged their candidates.
There were others who still took issue with municipality splits, as well.
The LRC has held two hearing sessions, and will soon turn in an updated version of the proposed map. It would impact the 2014 election cycle.
