Pennsylvania Pre-Emption Bill Moves Forward

posted on April 21, 2017

Keystone State lawmakers passed House Bill 671 on Wednesday, sending it to the full House for consideration. Sponsored by state Rep. Mark Keller, HB 671 would ensure that firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state by preventing municipalities from enacting local ordinances that are stricter than the state law. 

Similar legislation was signed by former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett in 2014, but was struck down by the state Supreme Court last year for a violation of the “single subject” rule for legislative process. In short, the measure addressed too many issues that were all unrelated. 

Keller remained optimistic about the chances for HB 671. “Hopefully, the third time is the charm,” he said during the committee meeting.
