HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee passed House Bill 38, a desperate attempt to gerrymander our Commonwealth's courts. The officers of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, President Rick Bloomingdale and Secretary-Treasurer Frank Snyder, issued the following joint statement:
"Judicial gerrymandering further fractures our democracy. Statewide judges make decisions that impact all Pennsylvanians, and all Pennsylvanians should have an equal say in who holds these positions of power. In a democracy, voters choose our leaders, not the other way around. We vehemently oppose the distortion and gerrymandering of Pennsylvania's court system, proposed in House Bill 38."
