first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf Opposes Gutting of Independent Redistricting Commission Bill April 11, 2018center_img Press Release,  Redistricting,  Voting & Elections Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today released the following statement on the House State Government Committee Republican ​majority’s last-minute move to gut and replace House Bill 722, originally to create an independent redistricting commission, with a redistricting process that is more politically driven:“This is partisan politics at its worst and it shows a flippant disregard for thousands of citizens that have spoken in favor of independent redistricting and ending gerrymandering. After the last few months, it should be clear that the solution to our broken redistricting system is not putting more power in the hands of partisan politicians. This is wrong, and it is an affront to our democracy. I urge the full House to reject this partisan political power play and demand a vote on a truly independent redistricting commission.”last_img read more
