The Chamber recently submitted comments to the Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee on the important issue of Merit Selection. For nearly two decades, our Chamber has been engaged in efforts to change the way Pennsylvania selects members of the state Supreme, Superior and Commonwealth courts. Together with the broad-based coalition, Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts, we have worked to advance consideration of measures similar to House Bills 1815 and 1816, and will continue to urge favorable action on legislation providing for a constitutional amendment, statewide referendum, and nominating and selection process to fill Pennsylvania’s appellate court bench.

Please refer to all of our comments here.
