HOUSE Passes RULWA Reform Measure


The Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted April 4 to pass PaOHV’s long sought Recreational Use of Land and Water Act amendments. This legislation provides new protections shielding landowners from law suits for opening their land for recreational uses including OHV recreation.


HB 544 sponsored by Adams County Republican Representative Dan Moul cleared third consideration final passage by a vote of 187-2.  The legislation moves onto the Senate.


Before the House vote, PaOHV representatives Fred Brown and Don McClure and Dave Patti from the Pennsylvania Business Council met with Senator Rich Alloway (R-Franklin) who is the prime sponsor of SB 72 the Senate companion bill to HB 544. Senator Alloway was advised that the House was poised to send HB 544 to the Senate.


Senator Alloway indicated that he would seek Senate action on the House bill.  He was firm in wanting to move the issue forward.

This development represents a major step forward toward securing RULWA reforms. PaOHV will keep members advised on progress in the Senate.
