DALLASTOWN– At the request of York County Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill, the Senate Majority Policy Committee will discuss the prospects of a limited constitutional convention during an upcoming workshop event on Friday. Phillips Hill said “Over the last several months, the people of PA have grown increasingly frustrated with their government at all levels.” Prior to the pandemic, she introduced a measure to give people the opportunity to address the many good-government reforms the legislature and governor have not been able to accomplish for decades. The last constitutional convention held in PA was in 1967 in order to reform and modernize the state’s judicial system. Proponents of another limited convention argue that more limits need to be placed on the state government, including shrinking the size of the legislature, reforming the state budget process, and clarifying the checks and balances of the legislature, the Governor, and the courts. The workshop will take place on Friday, September 18 at 1 p.m. at the Dallastown Borough Administration Building at 175 East Broad Street. The public is invited to watch the event live on the Majority Policy Committee’s website.
