FAIR ELECTIONS

of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court appoints the fifth
member. The fifth member tilts the balance in favor of one
party or the other, and the gerrymandering begins.
A bipartisan group of Pennsylvania legislators is seeking
to reform this broken system. Senate Bill 22, introduced
by Senators Lisa Boscola (D) and Mario Scavello (R) and
co-sponsored by 10 other senators, and House Bill 722,
introduced by Steve Samuelson (D) and Eric Roe (R) and
cosponsored by 90 other representatives, would put
redistricting into the hands of an independent citizens
commission that would redraw the district lines in an open
and fair manner. The commission would be composed of
11 willing citizens randomly chosen from a vetted pool of
registered voters, four of whom are registered with the
largest political party, four of whom are registered with
the second-largest party, and three of whom are unaffiliated with either of the largest political parties.

The process for redistricting would be transparent,
with opportunity for public input, and the commission
would not be permitted to consider prior election
results, the party affiliations of voters or the addresses of
any individual.

Time is Critical
To accomplish these common-sense reforms, the Pennsylvania Constitution must be amended. In order to do so,
a bill establishing the citizens commission must pass both
the Pennsylvania House and the Senate in two consecutive
legislative sessions and then be approved by voters. Both
SB22 and HB722 have been introduced and referred to
committee. Each is waiting to be scheduled for action
by the committees' chairs. Time is of the essence as the
decennial census, and hence redistricting, is only a few
short years away.
