West Virginia state lawmakers are asking the Supreme Court to step in and overrule a decision a lower court panel reached last week which struck down a plan because it wasn't in line with population distribution requirements.
It's important to point out that at the very least, the move buys lawmakers more time to formulate a new map that satisfies population distribution requirements. The Charleston Daily Mail:
I noted earlier this week that the dispute isn't a partisan squabble, and the map the legislature approved only marginally alters the old map. Rather, the issue is that the Second District exceeds the mean congressional district population.
