House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: December 7, 2016 10:08 AM
From: Representative Rob W. Kauffman
To: All House members
Subject: Reduction in Size of House and Senate
In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation that would reduce the size of both the House of Representatives and the Senate (formerly House Bill 560).

In previous sessions, this legislation was introduced as two separate pieces by former Speaker, Sam Smith. I have decided to combine both pieces of legislation into one bill. This bill would amend the Constitution by reducing the size of the House of Representatives to 153 members and the Senate to 38 members.

I would appreciate your consideration of this legislation.

Previous Cosponsors: Bloom, Corbin, Saccone, Dunbar, Kampf, Tallman, Knowles, Heffley, Mentzer, Saylor, A. Harris, Mullery, DeLuca, Simmons, Gingrich, Murt, Fee, Benninghoff, Gillen, Moul, and Caltagirone

Introduced as HB253
