HARRISBURG – PA House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, a commissioner on the state’s Legislative Reapportionment Commission, said it was clear after two days of commission hearings on the proposed plans that changes must be made to the preliminary House map. He said, “Whether it has been testimony about how communities of interest in southwestern PA have been broken apart, how Cumberland County deserves an additional House seat based upon population gain, how the preliminary House map dilutes the voice of Hispanic voters, or any number of other concerns that have been submitted to the commission, it is clear that significant changes are needed to the preliminary House map.” Benninghoff also noted he has continued to reach out to fellow commissioners to further discussions on improving the preliminary House map.
