Week of September 25, 2017

Bills Pass Senate, Go to House for Further Consideration
All bills passed unanimously.
Senate Bill 135 – allows the use of leashed tracking dogs to recover legally harvested deer;
Senate Bill 252 – amends the Pittsburgh Parking Authority’s Enabling Act to support private development;
Senate Bill 751 – provides for licensure and regulation of non-bank mortgage servicers;
Senate Bill 785 – expands the use of low-speed vehicles on public highways.

Motion to Non-Concur in House Amendments to House Bill 453
House Bill 453, the Fiscal Code, as amended by the House of Representatives, called for removing moneys from certain designated funds and settlement agreements to put into the General Fund in an effort to end the budget impasse. Click here to see these proposed fund transfers. While I supported the concept of using unused, surplus moneys, I had questions with the details – beginning with using transportation moneys for General Fund purposes, which raises a number of constitutional questions. The Senate voted to non-concur by a vote of 43-7. The bill now returns to the House for further consideration.
