Three redistricting hearings slated for later this month have been rescheduled to accommodate the House’s early return to Harrisburg.

The hearings, originally scheduled to be held Sept. 20, 21 and 22 have been moved to October as the House plans to return to the Capitol ahead of its original Sept. 27 start date to challenge the Wolf administration’s mask mandate.
