PA. Senate Bill 1255 — Storm Water Authority Rates

PA. Senate Bill 1255 — Storm Water Authority Rates

 We wanted to let you know that the House Local Government Committee met today to consider Senator Erickson’s storm water legislation: 


  • Senate Bill 1255 (Erickson-R) amends Title 53 (Municipalities Generally) further providing for the purposes and powers of a storm water authority.  Specifically, a storm water authority may establish a program that enables property owners to reduce their rates and charges by implementing and maintaining storm water best management practices that reduce the quantity or improve the quality of the storm water that their properties generate.


  • Chair Kate Harper (R-Montgomery) offered Amendment 08056 which was adopted unanimously.  The amendment clarifies that a storm water authority may establish reasonable and uniform rates based in whole or in part on property characteristics, which may include installation and maintenance of best management practices approved and inspected by the authority.


The bill was reported, as amended, unanimously and now goes before the full House for its consideration.    


Please let me know if you have any questions.
