Join Represent PA, a local chapter of RepresentUs, the nation’s largest nonpartisan anti-corruption campaign, in demanding that the PA legislature reform their rules so that bills with bipartisan support are guaranteed a vote in committee, and bills that pass favorably through committee are guaranteed a debate and vote on the floor of the House.

Last year, even though the Anti-Gerrymandering Bill, HB 722, had bipartisan support from a majority of legislators and strong public support, legislative rules allowed a single person elected from a single district to block the bill from a vote. This is why Pennsylvania has the third least productive legislature in the country - only behind Minnesota and the US Congress - with only 7% of bills that are introduced actually passing.

The first item that the legislature votes on each session is on Legislative Rules, so join us in demanding that those rules be changed!
