February 05, 2018

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to deny applications to stay the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Order that held the commonwealth’s congressional maps unconstitutional:

“The U.S. Supreme Court correctly recognized that there is no reason to delay implementing the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s order. Now, all parties must focus on getting a fair map in place. Gerrymandering is wrong and we must correct errors of the past with the existing map. My team is ready, willing and able to work with the General Assembly to ensure a new map is fair and within the clear orders given by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.”
