Walker signs Congressional redistricting bill

Posted August 10th, 2011 @ 12:14pm

Just before the deadline, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed two bills into law which redefine the state’s legislative and congressional districts.

Democrats had called on the governor to veto the maps. They said that would show he was serious about finding a common ground on important issues.

Assembly Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca called the signing a blatant, partisan power grab by Walker.

Opponents now wait to see if a federal lawsuit filed on constitutional grounds can succeed.
