New challenge to revised Pa. redistricting plan

Posted: July 07, 2012

HARRISBURG - The latest attempt to redraw Pennsylvania's state legislative district boundaries for the first time since 2001 is headed back to the state's highest court, which struck down a previous plan. Pennsylvania's 20-member Senate Democratic minority caucus challenged the plan Friday in the state Supreme Court. Meanwhile, another challenge is expected from an Allentown-area resident whose first lawsuit provided a crucial basis for the court's earlier rejection. Redrawing legislative districts is required by the Constitution to account for population shifts over the last decade. - AP
