Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday said he was still considering whether or not to submit a congressional map he considers fair to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, as he and the other parties to the original League of Women Voters v. Commonwealth case face a February 15 deadline to submit their preferred maps to the court as they consider what map to approve to meet their satisfaction of constitutional favorability.
