New Congressional Redistricting Legislation Signed

Corbett Signs Redistricting Legislation<BR>
HARRISBURG -  Governor Tom Corbett has signed legislation to reshape Pennsylvania's congressional districts for the next ten years.

The Republican-designed map will carve central Pennsylvania's 4 congressional districts into 8.

Top Republicans unveiled the plan last week and it was approved by the state Senate and passed in the House without any public hearings or input.

Democrats have criticized the plan, saying it was designed to increase re-election chances of Republican congressmen.
