House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: January 20, 2015 01:22 PM
From: Representative Kerry A. Benninghoff
To: All House members
Subject: Devise of a Pennsylvania State Forest Camp Lease
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that amends the Conservation and Natural Resources Act, further providing that state forest camp leases may be devised by operation of a lessee's will. This legislation establishes procedure for the transfer of such a lease to the devisee. In cases where the devisee is a non-resident of Pennsylvania, this bill empowers the Department to establish a non-resident annual rental fee and prohibits non-resident devises from selling or assigning such leases to subsequent non-residents of the Commonwealth. This provision ensures that these campsites will be returned to the Department for use by Pennsylvania residents.

I believe that it is important to provide our constituents the flexibility to bequeath these campsite property interests to their heirs. Please join me in cosponsoring this important piece of legislation.

Introduced as HB1106
