HARRISBURG – PA House Majority Leader, Rep. Kerry Benninghoff of Centre & Mifflin Counties released a statement after the PA Supreme Court ordered approval of the state’s reapportionment plan. He said the order reflects the high court majority’s continued shift from “a fair arbiter of fact and law to a rubber stamp for liberal special interests and left-wing partisan political positions.” He added that the court subordinated the PA Constitution, past court precedent, and basic fairness to the stated desire to hijack the state redistricting process to artificially create a Democrat majority in the PA House through deliberate racial and political gerrymandering. Looking ahead, Benninghoff said we are continuing to examine the next steps in our remaining legal options and are not foreclosing any possibility to ensure Pennsylvanians get a fair plan that accurately reflects them in the General Assembly.
