PA Gas Deregulation to Pass in Early June

PA Gas Deregulation to Pass in Early June

The Pennsylvania state senate will pass senate bill 601, (SB 601), the gas deregulation bill for small commercial and residential customers, on June 7, said a spokesman for Sen. Jeff Piccola's office. Piccola is the bill's main sponsor in the state senate.

"It's at the final stage right now," said Mike Sarfert, a Piccola aid. "It is up for its third consideration right now, and when the senate gets back in session on June 7, I think it should pass."

The bill was reported out of the Appropriations committee earlier this week and it received its second consideration, Sarfert said. The bill was in the process of receiving its third and final consideration when the session broke. A bill needs three considerations before going to a vote, Sarfert explained.

"The only reason it did not receive its third consideration was because of another issue unrelated to bill's content," Sarfert said.
