To find out when the two state government committees and the one commission are meeting to discuss redistricting, a PA voter must follow four different websites. In our attempt to keep ourselves and PA voters informed, we will be using this landing page to collect what we know about all the various hearings.
Reapportionment and redistricting happen every ten years and it can be confusing who does what and how it gets done. As the process starts again in 2021 we share some Q&A’s to help all of us understand the process better. This is by no means comprehensive but it is a start.
Our attention now shifts to the drawing of maps and to preparation for public hearings to be held this summer and early fall by the Senate and House State Government Committees and Legislative Reapportionment Commission.
Get ready for redistricting! Ten $1000 prizes will be given for the top PA house and senate district plans (five in each category) that meet criteria proposed in LACRA (the Legislative and Congressional Redistricting Act, HB 22/SB 222).
On May 26, Carol Kuniholm and Pat Beaty of Fair Districts PA gave testimony on congressional redistricting criteria to the PA Senate State Government committee. View hearing agenda and recording here. Read full FDPA testimony below.
