Pa. redistricting panel to get input on new maps

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania lawmakers are among the 29 people who've signed up to share their thoughts on the latest set of maps for Pennsylvania's House and Senate districts.

The Legislative Reapportionment Commission meets in Harrisburg Wednesday afternoon as it continues its quest to pass legally binding boundaries for 203 seats in the House and 50 in the Senate.

Its previous effort was thrown out by the state Supreme Court in January.

The commission will hold a second hearing to gather public comments next week.

Among those on the agenda to speak Wednesday are Republican Senate President Joe Scarnati and Amanda Holt, a librarian whose alternative maps helped persuade the high court to invalidate the previous version.

The commission includes the House and Senate floor leaders of both parties.
