Governor Tom Corbett
is expected to sign a congressional redistricting bill into law Thursday, less than two weeks after it was made public.
The bill was written after Pennsylvania lost a seat in Congress during the 2010 census
report, forcing the state to create a new district map.
It went through the Senate and House in just over a week. Some Democrats
argue the new district lines give Republicans
the upper hand.
The governor is not expected to hold a public signing ceremony.
