PA Bill Allows Legislature to Intervene on State Regulations

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that “a bill passed by a divided Pennsylvania House on Tuesday would give legislative committees new opportunities to intervene as state agencies develop regulations for everything from gas drilling to gambling.”  

“Opponents of the measure, including House Democrats and Gov. Tom Wolf, say it could cause the state’s already complicated rule-making process to grind to a halt.”  

“The chamber passed House Bill 965 with a vote of 113-84 and sent it to the Senate for concurrence. Five Republicans joined Democrats in opposing the bill, and one Democrat joined Republicans in supporting it. The Senate passed a companion bill unanimously this spring, but the House version varies slightly.”
