House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: March 3, 2017 03:17 PM
From: Representative Michael K. Hanna
To: All House members
Subject: Composition of the Pennsylvania Game Commission
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation that would prevent current or former Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) employees or deputy conservation officers from serving as appointed PGC commissioners.

Under my bill, current and former employees or deputy conservation officers of the commission would not be permitted to serve as PGC commissioners. Additionally, in all wildlife management decisions, the commissioners would be guided by the principles of best management practices, with equal regard for the social, economic and recreational impacts of their decisions.

This proposal would allow for a more independent Board of Commissioners with a broader range of focus on wildlife conservation and restoration. I hope you will join me by co-sponsoring this legislation. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

If you have any questions, please contact Lynette Perkins via email at LMPerkins@pahouse.net or by phone at 717-772-2283.

Introduced as HB1194
