Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: March 24, 2022 09:03 AM
From: Senator Devlin J. Robinson
To: All Senate members
Subject: Modernizing the Port of Pittsburgh Commission Board
As the Senate appointee to the Port of Pittsburgh Commission, I plan to introduce legislation to modernize the membership of the Port of Pittsburgh Commission Board.
The membership of this Board has not been updated in over 25 years. In addition, several of the entities listed within the Port of Pittsburgh Commission Act as eligible for representation on the Board no longer exist.
My legislation will reduce the Commission from 15 members to 13 by retaining the current four legislative appointments as well as the four members appointed by the Governor. The remaining five members would be:
- Three members appointed by the Governor from a list of a at least five nominees submitted by the Southwestern Pennsylvania Regional Planning Commission; 

- One member nominated by the Port of Pittsburgh’s Executive Committee and appointed by the Port’s Board;
- One member appointed by the Governor from a list of at least three nominees submitted to the Governor by the Port’s Board.
Thank you for your consideration of this initiative, and I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this legislation. You may direct any questions to Allie Dutrey of my staff at 7-5839.

Introduced as SB1199
