HARRISBURG - Republicans revamped their proposals for redrawing Pennsylvania's Senate districts while party leaders labored Thursday over what they hoped would be a bipartisan compromise in the House of Representatives.
The special panel in charge of the decennial redistricting process is scheduled to vote Monday on a final plan encompassing both chambers.
The most noticeable change in the Senate plan released late Wednesday by Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi (R., Delaware) jettisons an earlier proposal for a Central Pennsylvania district that critics widely derided as a blatant example of gerrymandering.
In the House, Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R., Allegheny) and Minority Leader Frank Dermody (D., Allegheny) were said to be working on a possible compromise map. - AP
