The Senate Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee will consider two bills at its meeting set for 12:30 p.m., today (February 4), in Room 8 E-A of the East Wing of the State Capitol Complex, Harrisburg, according to Committee Chairman Senator Elder Vogel.

Senate Bill 85, sponsored by Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-28), provides for license fee exemptions for service dogs used by a fire department, sheriff’s office or in the performance of rescue services or medical emergency services. Currently, the fee exemption exists only for any municipal or State police department or agency.

Senate Bill 145, sponsored by Senator Gene Yaw (R-23), amends the Agricultural Area Security Law to allow for the voluntary relinquishment of the right to construct a residence.
