Townships Applaud Senate on Passage of
Right-to-Know Amendments; Urge House Action

David Sanko, executive director of the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors, has released the following statement in response to the Pennsylvania Senate’s unanimous passage of Senate Bill 444, which would amend the state’s Right-to-know Law:

“Townships across Pennsylvania applaud our state senators for their unanimous passage of Senate Bill 444. This bill would amend the commonwealth’s Right-to-Know Law to maintain government transparency while addressing provisions that proved costly for local governments without adding value for residents.

“We also applaud Sen. Dominic Pileggi, the bill’s prime sponsor, for his determination to address the unintended consequences that arose from this law. Now, we urge members of the House to pass this bill quickly and send it to the governor’s desk for a signature. The result will be a continued commitment to openness and transparency and increased efficiency in responding to open records requests.”
