WHAT: Rep. Jason Ortitay (R-Washington/Allegheny), a member of the House State Government Committee, will host one of eight committee hearings to gather input from residents on congressional redistricting. Every 10 years, information collected through the U.S. Census determines the number of U.S. representatives each state is entitled based on population. Once in receipt of that data, states are responsible for redrawing the geographic area of their congressional districts to ensure equal and fair representation, and the physical manifestation of the constitutional principle, “one person, one vote.”

WHO: Ortitay; Rep. Seth Grove, chairman of the House State Government Committee; members of the committee; and interested residents.

WHEN: Wednesday, Aug. 25, 9 a.m.

WHERE: Beacon I Building, 44 Abele Road, Second Floor, Bridgeville.
