Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: March 9, 2021 05:44 PM
From: Senator Gene Yaw
To: All Senate members
Subject: District Attorney Modernization Act
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that would cover situations when a District Attorneys law license is suspended, or they are disbarred.

In the case of suspension, the First Assistant District Attorney would become the Acting District Attorney pending reinstatement of the elected District Attorney or the end of the current term. Disbarment would create a vacancy and that would be filled by current law or by proposed legislation as it appears in Senate Bills 84, 85, and 86.
I hope you will join me in cosponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as SB420
