|Subject:||Ensuring Openness and Fairness in Redistricting|
|In the near future, I plan to reintroduce legislation, formerly House Bill 878, which would require openness and fairness in the redistricting process.
My legislation would allow any Pennsylvania resident to submit reapportionment plans for legislative districts and would require the Reapportionment Commission to consider these plans. To facilitate these efforts, the Commission would be required to make software and demographic data available to the public for use in developing such plans.
The bill would also require the Reapportionment Commission to:
Please join me in bringing more transparency to and encouraging citizen participation in the redistricting process.
Introduced as HB924
