PA Legislative Reapportionment Commission fights challenge of their fairly drawn maps!
In Benninghoff v 2021 LRC, SCOTUS has granted the PA Legislative Reapportionment Commission until September 16, 2022 to respond to the plaintiff’s petition for certiorari. Plaintiffs are challenging the state legislative maps, adopted in March 2022, as violating the 14th Amendment and the federal Voting Rights Act. The LRC convened numerous public hearings, and CCFD members offered public comment and invited expert testimony. CCFD believes the LRC maps are the result of a fair process, and should be left alone by SCOTUS. Stay tuned!
