Open application for Pennsylvania’s Legislative Reapportionment Commission

    Pennsylvania’s Legislative Reapportionment Commission is looking for a chairperson. The House and Senate are taking applications, which are open to Pennsylvanians who do not hold an elected position for which they are paid.

    The five-member commission consists of the chair and four legislative floor leaders. The panel redraws state legislative boundaries every 10 years, and the Associated Press reports the 2011 chairperson could be needed through the end of the year.

    Interested applicants should send a resume, letter of qualifications and a statement of interest to the commission’s office in the Capitol Complex in Harrisburg. The panel chair usually gets a stipend and a staff.
