The PA Legislative Budget and Finance Releases Two Reports

 

Harrisburg – The Senate Legislative Budget and Finance Committee (LBFC), chaired by Senator Bob Mensch (R-24), released two reports on Monday, May 4, 2020.

The first was ‘A Study of the Statutory Cap on the Pennsylvania State Police.’ Senate Resolution 2019-105 (SR105) directs the LBFC to conduct a follow-up study on the work conducted in 1996 and 2001 on the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) complement. The Pennsylvania State Police has a statutory “cap” that limits the number of state troopers. The full report can be found here. The Report Highlights and the Committee Presentation provide additional details on the study.

The second study was on ‘The Impact of Tavern Gaming on the Pennsylvania State Lottery.’ Act 2013-90, an amendment to the Local Option Small Games of Chance Act, requires the LBFC to conduct an annual study of the impact of tavern gaming on the State Lottery. The full report can be found here. The Report Highlights and the Committee Presentation provide additional details on the study.

Additional reports can be found on the LBFC website at http://lbfc.legis.state.pa.us/.
