HARRISBURG (AP) — The five-member Legislative Reapportionment Commission redrawing the boundaries of PA’s state legislative districts voted to approve new maps for the next decade. The Commission voted 4-1 on Friday. The vote came after nearly a year of meetings, hearings, and closed-door discussions to carry out the constitutionally required, once-a-decade map-drawing to account for demographic shifts identified by the census. The lone dissenter was Republican House Leader Kerry Benninghoff. Benninghoff slammed it as an unconstitutional gerrymander and vowed to challenge it in court.
