This is a list of bills that passed the Pennsylvania House or Senate this week, and mention of any noteworthy resolutions. Standard caveats apply (resolutions not generally included, list of sponsors deleted if it was too long - three lines in the originally formatting).

Our accountants friends at PICPA have updated their legislative page.

Regular Session


The timing of a few resolutions caught my eye.

On Sept. 25th the House designated Sept. 20th as National Attention Deficit Disorder Awareness Day. I guess they were distracted on the 20th and didn’t to it until later? Similarly, on Sept. 25th the House designated Sept. as National Preparedness Month. Umm, I understand they were in recess until late in Sept. but this sort of thing does not inspire confidence.
