Pennsylvania is redistricted every 10 years by a five member commission composed of the leaders from both parties of each chamber. They cobble together an “incumbent protection program” by developing a redistricting scheme that defies laws of common sense. The legislature doesn’t enact the plan, nor does the Governor have the ability to veto it.
Of course, the public has no input either. The only safeguard to keep the commission from going Picasso is the constitutional right of an aggrieved citizen to go to the Supreme Court and seek relief.
