Pennsylvania

Page history last edited by Faye Anderson 10 years, 12 months ago

In the Keystone State, congressional and state legislative districts are drawn by a Legislative Reapportionment Commission.  Majority and Minority Leaders in the House and Senate each select a member.  The four members selected by the legislature must select a fifth member who serves as the chairman of the commission.  If the four members are unable to agree on a fifth member by the established deadline, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court selects the fifth member.

 

The commission must submit its redistricting plan to the General Assembly not later than 90 days of its formation.  Once the plan is completed, it can be challenged for up to 30 days. If any challenges are sustained by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the commission must revise its plan to incorporate the changes.
