Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: September 26, 2023 10:48 AM
From: Senator Elder A. Vogel, Jr. and Sen. Wayne Langerholc, Jr.
To: All Senate members
Subject: Increasing Penalties for Fentanyl Distribution Involving Minors
We plan to introduce legislation that will establish a separate chargeable offense for fentanyl distribution involving minors.

This bill will be similar to legislation recently signed into law in Florida that increases penalties and provides for a Pennsylvania Public Safety Sentence on those who sell, traffic, or manufacture fentanyl if a minor is involved.

This legislation will establish a Pennsylvania Public Safety Sentence of no less than 20 years and no more than 40 years.

Please join us in co-sponsoring this important legislation protecting Pennsylvania's minors.

Introduced as SB1030
