Pa. GOP lawmakers promise ‘new level of transparency’ in Congressional redistricting plan

When leaders of Pennsylvania’s legislature convene in the next few months to draw the state’s new Congressional maps, they will hold a series of public hearings and solicit input from the public using a new website, Republican lawmakers said Monday.

“We look forward to working with members of both parties — and, most importantly, Black, Latinx, Asian/Pacific Islander, Indigenous, and other communities of color who have historically been left out of the redistricting process — to ensure that everyone in Pennsylvania has an equal opportunity to be represented by someone who shares their values and lived experience,” Executive Director Khalif Ali said. “As part of that work, we will be supporting communities in presenting testimony and drawing maps that allow them to tell their story.”
