– Following two hearings conducted by the House Majority Policy Committee on the preliminary state House map recently advanced by the Pennsylvania Legislative Reapportionment Commission, Committee Chairman Martin Causer (R- Cameron/McKean/Potter) submitted the testimony received at these hearings to the commission as it reviews public exceptions in advance of considering final state legislative maps.
In a letter to Legislative Reapportionment Commission Chairman Mark Nordenberg, Causer noted the reasons why the committee held the hearings and the importance of submitting this testimony for consideration to the commission.
“Residents across Pennsylvania have concerns about how the proposed plan would negatively impact their community’s representation and limit their voices in Harrisburg. They also feared that time and available testimony slots could run out before they had an opportunity to voice their concerns before the commission,” Causer said.
“While the testifiers at these hearings are just a mere fraction of the Pennsylvanians with real concerns about the proposed plan, we thought it was of utmost importance to present their valuable and helpful testimony to you and to the other members of the commission.”
Over the last two weeks, the House Majority Policy Committee held two hearings—one in the Town of McCandless, Allegheny County, and one in Upper Allen Township, Cumberland County—to hear directly from citizens about how the proposed state House map would affect Pennsylvania communities.
