Todd A. Eachus served as a Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. He represented the 116th District (Luzerne County) from 1997 until 2010. Eachus represented most of southern Luzerne County, including Hazleton, Butler Township, and Foster Township. He previously served as the Majority Leader of the House.
Responding to the kids for cash scandal in his district in 2009, Eachus sponsored House Bill 1648 which established the Interbranch Commission on Juvenile Justice in July 2009. The commission consists of eleven members, appointed from each branch of government in Pennsylvania, with four members chosen by the judicial branch, four by the legislature and three by the governor.
