HARRISBURG (AP) – Gov. Tom Wolf is releasing priorities for drawing PA’s new congressional districts given to him by the panel he picked, with an emphasis on fairness, and reflecting statewide voter preferences. In theory, the principles given to Wolf will guide the Democrat in his dealings with a GOP-controlled Legislature, less than four years after a divided state Supreme Court redrew the map. PA’s task is complicated by the need to draw 17 districts to replace its 18 districts. If Wolf and lawmakers can’t agree on a map, it could be left to the PA Supreme Court to redraw districts again.
