Freeman Wants to Tweak Recreation Fees
Freeman's bill passed the Pennsylvania Senate today approved the bill 49-0, and sent it back to the House for concurrence on some technical changes. The House vote is expected to occur in the coming days.
"Parks, playgrounds and other recreational facilities are important to our quality of life," Freeman said. "They promote green space in the community, safeguard the environment and give people of all ages a place for exercise and recreation. My bill would ease the restrictions on the use of the recreation fees municipalities receive from developers, so that funding can be more wisely used to benefit the lives of all area residents."
