DALLASTOWN– At the request of York County Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill, the Senate Majority Policy Committee will discuss today the prospects of a limited constitutional convention. Phillips Hill said “Over the last several months, the people of PA have grown increasingly frustrated with their government at all levels.” 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 hearing is today at 1 p.m. at the Dallastown Borough Administration Building at 175 East Broad Street. The public can watch as it will be streamed live at policy.pasenategop.com.
