The latest in Wisconsin

The U.S. Supreme Court denied the Wisconsin Legislature's petition to declare that federal court intervention in redistricting violates principles of federalism and comity.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court, on a 4-3 vote, issued an order adopting a "least-change" approach to drawing new congressional and state legislative districts based on the state's existing plans.
Wisconsin Gov. Evers vetoed SB 622 (congressional districts) and SB 621 (legislative districts), calling them "gerrymandering 2.0." The Wisconsin Supreme Court previously agreed to draw new maps if the political process failed, and ordered parties to submit proposed maps by noon on Dec. 15, 2021. A federal court has stayed a challenge by Democrats until the state supreme court completes its process.
