Members of Pennsylvania Republican Delegation Issue Statement in Response to Pennsylvania Supreme Court Ruling on State’s Congressional Map

Jan 23, 2018

WASHINGTON – Members of the Pennsylvania Republican Congressional Delegation issued the following statement in response to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Ruling Monday on the state’s congressional map:

“Yesterday’s misguided decision by the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court is an unfortunate example of the judicial branch inserting itself into the core functions of the legislative branch. Today’s Congressional maps were drafted and approved by both Republicans and Democrats. It also comes on the eve of a midterm election. An orderly electoral process is an essential function of our Democracy.”

The following Members of Congress have signed the statement: U.S. Representatives Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05), Mike Kelly (PA-03), Scott Perry (PA-04), Ryan Costello (PA-06), Patrick Meehan (PA-07), Bill Shuster (PA-09), Tom Marino (PA-10), Lou Barletta (PA-11), Keith Rothfus (PA-12), Charlie Dent (PA-15), and Lloyd Smucker (PA-16).
