[ARCHIVED] Governor’s Veto of Congressional Redistricting Plan Overridden in Special Session

The Maryland General Assembly reconvened for a Special Session from Monday, December 5 to Thursday, December 9, 2021. One of the major topics was the Congressional Redistricting Plan. The Legislative Redistricting Advisory Commission proposed the plan, which passed by the House Tuesday night. The Senate passed the plan on Wednesday and was formalized by the House shortly thereafter. 

On Thursday December 9, Governor Hogan vetoed the plan, as promised.  "This congressional map done in back rooms by party bosses in Annapolis makes a mockery of our democracy and it is an embarrassment to all that our state stands for," Governor Hogan said Thursday afternoon. "I think gerrymandering is a cancer on our democracy. There's no question that both parties are guilty of it. It happens across the country. Republicans do it just as much as Democrats." 

The House voted 96-41 to override the Governor’s veto. The Senate joined the House 32-14 less than an hour later. Lawsuits challenging the Redistricting Plan are likely.
