Rep. Subeck: Response to Supreme Court Declaring Legislative Maps Unconstitutional

MADISON – Today, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin ruled that the state legislature’s electoral maps are unconstitutional. Representative Lisa Subeck released the following statement:

“Wisconsin’s unconstitutional and unfair legislative maps have failed the people of our state for more than a decade, diminishing the power of their voices, their votes, and their ability to choose their representatives. Today, the court affirmed what we have been saying for years: Wisconsin’s partisan, gerrymandered maps are unconstitutional and should be redrawn. The court’s order makes clear that Wisconsin must adopt or approve new maps that adhere to the constitution, putting an end to the practice of Republican politicians choosing their voters with the intent of consolidating their own partisan political power.”

Rep. Subeck has represented the 78th Assembly District since 2015 and serves as Chair of the Assembly Democratic Caucus.
