Legislators to Call for Action on Limited Constitutional Convention Bill

State Senator John H. Eichelberger, Jr. and State Representative Stephen Bloom will join legislators and reform advocates at a news conference at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, October 17, to call for action on legislation that would seek a limited constitutional convention in Pennsylvania.  The news conference will be held in the State Capitol’s East Wing Media Center.

Senate Bill 867 would allow Pennsylvania voters to decide if the state would host a constitutional convention.  Representative Bloom is introducing a companion bill in the House.  If the majority of voters vote in favor of a constitutional convention, a preparatory committee would immediately make logistical arrangements for the holding of the convention.

Pennsylvania hosted its last limited state constitutional convention in 1967.

The news conference will be streamed live at senatoreichelberger.com and Facebook.com/senatoreichelberger.
