URGENT: Ask Gov Wolf to call special session to end gerrymandering in PA

State lawmakers left unfinished business when they recessed for the summer. They didn’t pass (or even hold a vote on) a bill that would end gerrymandering in Pennsylvania by amending our state Constitution to put in place a state legislative and congressional redistricting process that is independent, fair and transparent.

Join Fair Districts PA in asking Governor Wolf to call a special session on redistricting starting July 9.

The special session would allow the bipartisan prime sponsors of Senate Bill 22, House Bill 722 and House Bill 2402 to propose their bills again – bills that garnered more co-sponsors and support than any other legislation introduced this session. The bills would include all the best new safeguards, negotiated provisions and a new nonpartisan failsafe.

This critical reform could pass if legislators come back AND we continue to focus public attention and pressure on the process.

We cannot afford to delay action for another decade. Write and call Governor Wolf today.
