Citizen, PILCOP Take on Legislative Reapportionment
September 2012Philadelphia Bar Reporter
Amanda Holt has an unparalleled passion for the voting rights of Pennsylvania citizens. Over the past year, she has brought the Pennsylvania Constitution back into the Commonwealth's legislative redistricting process. Holt challenged a system that preserved incumbency at the expense of the voting rights of the citizens and the integrity of communities. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court heard her voice and issued a historic decision in February 2012 invalidating a state legislative reapportionment plan for the first time since the current system was written into the state Constitution in 1968.
