|Subject:||Repealing the Obsolete Pennsylvania Crime Commission Act|
|Please join me as a co-sponsor of legislation to repeal Act 169 of 1978, the Pennsylvania Crime Commission Act. The act is now obsolete.
The Pennsylvania Crime Commission was established to inquire into organized crime and public corruption and to issue an annual report on the status of organized crime in the Commonwealth. The commission was eliminated through Act 84 of 1993. Its ongoing investigations were transferred to the Pennsylvania State Police.
The former Pennsylvania Crime Commission is unrelated to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, which was created under a different statute and for a separate purpose.
I look forward to working with you on this important legislation.
Introduced as HB1832
