|Subject:||Co-sponsorship: Amend Act 161 of 2014 (Minor corrected language)|
|Upon our return, I will be re-introducing legislation to correct two minor omissions related to the PA Military Community Enhancement Commission. Last Session, the Legislature enacted Act 161 of 2014 (HB1550) which provides for the creation of the PA Military Community Enhancement Commission within DCED related to the military installations within our Commonwealth.
The current language of the Act provides for one senior military advisor who would be a three-star or four-star military officer. My proposed legislation would include the option of appointing a one-star and two-star military officer. By including the one-star and two-star military officer, this would open the possibilities of attracting a highly-qualified retired military officer who may not have attained the rank of a three-star or four-star military officer. Also, my proposed legislation would require that the senior level military advisor be a resident of this Commonwealth. Those are the only two changes to the original language.
If you have any questions, please contact Margaret Tricarico at email@example.com or 717-772-5568 or Democratic Extension 6168.
