Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: April 16, 2024 10:27 AM
From: Senator David G. Argall
To: All Senate members
Subject: Schuylkill County Land Conveyance
In the near future, I will introduce legislation to direct the Department of General Services to grant and convey property in Rush Township, Schuylkill County.

For over 60 years, this 2.5 acre property was leased by a family-owned golf course from the Department of Conservation & Natural Resources (DCNR) for parking. This acreage is at the edge of Tuscarora State Park and has never been used for anything state park-related. As with all lease agreements, when the golf course changed ownership, the lease needed to renegotiated.  

A simple issue that should have been quickly resolved  has turned into a bureaucratic nightmare.  There have been numerous unsuccessful attempts to broker an agreement, thus this legislation is required.  

This legislation will transfer ownership of this small parcel of land to the golf course.  The new owner is committed to maintaining it in the same manner as in the past 60 years. 

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as SB1235
