Pennsylvania Legislative Reapportionment Commission


Second Round of Challenges filed to Oppose the LRC’s Revised Redistricting Plan

The Law Center, working with Hogan Lovells US LLP, has filed a Petition for Second Review on behalf of petitioners Amanda Holt et al in response to the LRC’s Revised Redistricting Plan.

The LRC’s revised plan still violates Section 16 of the PA Constitution by proposing dozens of unnecessary splits to municipalities and disregards the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s February 3rd decision affirming that splits could only be made when absolutely necessary. The LRC elected not to adopt the plan created by petitioner Holt, which achieved better population equality and made half as many splits. This latest petition asks that the LRC revise their plan yet again, with closer compliance to the Revised Holt Plan.
