Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: January 9, 2013 04:41 PM
From: Senator Jay Costa
To: All Senate members
Subject: Unlawful Uses of Rent Rebate
Please join me in sponsoring legislation introduced as Senate Bill 592 in the 2011-2012 legislative session by Senators COSTA, TARTAGLIONE, FONTANA, SOLOBAY, LEACH, BREWSTER, BAKER, FERLO, STACK, BROWNE and WASHINGTON.

The legislation will make it unlawful for a landlord and tenant to enter into any agreement that requires a tenant to pay or assign to the landlord any part of a Rent Rebate to which the tenant is entitled under the Taxpayer Relief Act of 2006. The Attorney General’s Office is granted the authority to enforce this act. Further, any landlord who violates the act will be required to fully reimburse the tenant any portion of payment along with penalties and interest on the total amount of the payment to which the tenant was entitled.

I hope you will join me in sponsoring this legislation.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Introduced as SB389
