Local Government Commission Quarterly Legal Update

Starting in Spring 2016, the Local Government Commission is e-publishing a Quarterly Legal Update, intended to highlight selected decisions that may have implications for Pennsylvania municipalities. With a focus on reported opinions from our state courts, these decisions may include not only cases in which local governments are parties, but also those that address broader subjects, like statutory construction or constitutional concerns.

The Update also references selected active bills and recently enacted laws that may affect municipalities. Our complete compilation of Summaries of Acts Signed into Law, along with updates on Commission legislation and projects, may be found elsewhere on our website.

Members of the General Assembly and others who receive our Summary of Acts Signed into Law by email, will also receive the Quarterly Legal Update. Anyone else may subscribe to the Update and our other publications as well.
