HARRISBURG (AP) – A lawsuit has been filed by PA House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff asking the PA Supreme Court to throw out the new General Assembly district maps. Benninghoff also wants the court to direct that 10-year-old maps be used in this year’s election. The Centre County Republican argues the Legislative Reapportionment Commission’s set of House maps is slanted in favor of Democrats. He says they violate state constitutional standards in splitting municipalities and by how much some districts would vary from the average district’s population size.
