Virginia House of Delegates Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) issued a press release Friday addressing Page v. Va. State Board of Elections, the federal court case pending before the United States Supreme Court regarding Virginia’s congressional district map.
In his press release, the Speaker noted:
“The Virginia House of Delegates fully intends to exercise its legal right to attempt to remedy any legal flaw ultimately found by the courts with respect to the current congressional districts. However, we believe it would be inappropriate to act before the defendants have fully litigated this case. We are confident that a stay will be granted.
