HARRISBURG (AP) – A new legal filing claims redrawn district maps for the state House improperly carved up a western PA county. The lawsuit focuses on changes made to Butler County in district lines approved by the Legislative Reapportionment Commission earlier this month. People have more than two weeks left to take their objections to the General Assembly maps to the state Supreme Court. Additional challenges are expected, likely including from PA House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, a Centre County Republican. Benninghoff cast the lone “no” vote when the Legislative Reapportionment Commission approved the revised maps by a 4-1 vote.
