On Wednesday, the Senate passed a constitutional amendment on redistricting. The measure was originally drafted to apply to Congressional and General Assembly districts, but was amended to create judicial districts for the first time to elect members of the state's three appellate courts by region as opposed to statewide. The Senate State Government Committee changed a House-passed constitutional amendment that reduced the size of both the House (to 151) and Senate (to 38) by stripping out the Senate section. That House-only reduction passed last session. If it would pass again this session in identical form, it could be placed on the ballot for voters to decide. Retaining the Senate section would mean the process starts anew - an identical bill would need to pass again in the 2019-20 legislative term. Those proposals and other legislative activity will be discussed by guests Steve Esack, Harrisburg Correspondent with The Morning Call; Stephen Caruso, Harrisburg Bureau Chief with The PLS Reporter; and Brad Bumsted, Harrisburg Bureau Chief with The Caucus. Our host is Brian Lockman.
