Local Government Commission
A LEGISLATIVE SERVICE AGENCY OF THE PENNSYLVANIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY
What is the Local Government Commission?
The Local Government Commission is a bicameral, bipartisan legislative service agency. Having been created in 1935 by an Act of Assembly, it is one of the oldest agencies of its kind in the country. The Commission is comprised of five Senate Members and five House Members, appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, respectively. A small staff, consisting of professional and support personnel, assists the Commission with its administrative and statutory duties. Click here for a brochure.
