Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: December 5, 2018 02:53 PM
From: Senator David G. Argall
To: All Senate members
Subject: Reducing costs at Executive, Independent and State-Affiliated agencies
I will re-introduce legislation that will require Executive, Independent and State-Affiliated agencies to report their space usage to the Department of General Services on an annual basis. The report of each agency must include, at minimum the following information:
  • Whether the state facility is state-owned or leased;
  • Whether the state facility is occupied or vacant;
  • The size of the facility as measured in square feet;
  • The total expenditures for utilities per facility over the preceding twelve months;
  • The amount of rent paid for the preceding twelve months for any facility that is leased;
  • The purpose of each facility.

The information compiled will be presented in a report to both the majority and minority chairpersons of the House State Government Committee and the Senate State Government Committee.

This legislation will be an important first step towards establishing a baseline which will significantly reduce costs at these agencies and save the taxpayers’ money.

If you have any questions regarding the legislation, you can contact my office at 717-787-2637.

Introduced as SB327
