The House State Government Committee will hold a hearing to vote on a preliminary plan for congressional redistricting. The preliminary plan is a citizen map, which was submitted through the committee’s online mapping tool by Lehigh County resident Amanda Holt.
One amendment, offered by Chairman Seth Grove (R-York), would make minor adjustments to the citizen map to improve the compactness of districts, respond to citizen concerns regarding communities of interest and increase minority representation in Philadelphia. Like the preliminary plan, Grove’s amendment was developed without the use of partisan data.
Wednesday, Dec. 15, at 11:30 a.m.
Room 523 of the Irvis Office Building in the Capitol Complex in Harrisburg.
The meeting will be livestreamed at www.PaRedistricting.com
