Legislation to extend temporary regulations for civil service reported out of committee

Reported out of House State Government by a 14-11 vote

HARRISBURG, Dec. 12 – Today, Rep. Scott Conklin and members of the House State Government Committee voted on legislation to extend temporary regulations for civil service.

Conklin’s legislation would extend the Office of Administration’s temporary regulations for civil service, making them expire in six years.

“As the OA requires more time to make recommendations on amendments to Act 71 of 2018, which reformed civil service in Pennsylvania, this legislation would allow more time for the OA to make such recommendations by extending the current temporary regulations,” said Conklin, D-Centre. “OA is currently in the process of making recommendations and without this legislation, the temporary regulations would expire before OA completes its recommendations.”

OA previously promulgated temporary regulations, which would expire in 2025.
