House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: January 25, 2019 11:59 AM
From: Representative Melissa L. Shusterman
To: All House members
Subject: Resolution 15 – Rules Reform: One vote for a priority bill
More than 60,000 people count on each of us to literally represent their views and our communities, and these people bring great ideas that are too often bottled up and never receive a vote.

We need to change the House Rules to fix this. Under my plan, each House Member would get one Priority Bill per session. That bill would be guaranteed debate and an up/down vote in committee. The majority chairman of the committee would be able to delay the vote on sending the bill to the House floor for up to four additional legislative days for the purpose of holding a public hearing.

My resolution is one in a package of resolutions promoted by Fair Districts PA. Please sign on and show your support.

Introduced as HR15
