About HB 2420


HB 2420 is bill in the PA legislature that seeks to eliminate unfair, gerrymandered redistricting procedures in Pennsylvania. Visit the League’s site (link below) to learn all you want about gerrymandering and what is going on with HB2420.

From the League of Women Voters site:

Pennsylvania is one of the most gerrymandered states in the nation. If change is to be effective by the next round of redistricting after the 2010 census, a constitutional amendment is needed. Timing for passage of an amendment requires that the first piece of legislation be passed by June, 2008. If that does not occur, redistricting reform will have to wait until after the 2020 census.
