MADISON, WI – Today, U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement after Governor Tony Evers signed the new state legislature district maps passed by the Republican-controlled Assembly and Senate.

“Having fairer and more representative legislative district maps than the Republican gerrymandered map is a win for democracy. However, if a lawsuit is filed in the 7th Circuit challenging these new maps, the GOP legislature must commit to defending them in court, just as they’ve promised not to challenge them. It’s now their maps. Further, this makes fair federal maps even more important, as the legislature only dealt with state maps. The Wisconsin State Supreme Court must act soon and enact fair congressional maps.”
