Gov. Wolf: “I think elementary school students have the sophistication to draw a fair map”

Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday said he was still considering whether or not to submit a congressional map he considers fair to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, as he and the other parties to the original League of Women Voters v. Commonwealth case face a February 15 deadline to submit their preferred maps to the court as they consider what map to approve to meet their satisfaction of constitutional favorability.

 

“I haven’t decided [on whether to submit a map]. As party to the litigation, I have standing to submit a map and, if I do, I’ll submit it by 5:00 p.m. tomorrow,” he said.
