Here we go again: the Legislative Reapportionment Commission has scheduled another meeting to unveil new maps, after a truncated meeting last month and one set for early March that was cancelled before it began.
No press release from the commission officials yet, but House Republican spokesman Steve Miskin tweeted this afternoon that commission chairman Stephen McEwen, a retired judge, has scheduled that meeting for April 12 at 1 p.m.
"Vote on maps soon," he concluded the post.
Top state lawmakers have been struggling for nearly two months to revise the legislative boundaries they approved last year, which were rejected by the state Supreme Court in January.
The new maps will not go into effect until the next legislative cycle, and candidates this year are running in the districts set during the 2001 process.
UPDATE, 4:50 p.m. - Here's a link to McEwen's letter proposing an April 12 meeting, via Pennsylvania Independent.
