  Authorizing entities vested with the power of eminent domain to acquire replacement housing, to exercise their power of eminent domain therefor and to encourage and facilitate construction or rehabilitation of replacement housing by making loans and grants for planning and obtaining mortgage financing.

 The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania hereby enacts as follows:

 Section 1. Short Title.

 This act shall be known and may be cited as the Housing Replacement Authorization Act.

 ‘‘Acquiring agency.’’ An entity vested by statute with the power of eminent domain.

 ‘‘Displaced person.’’ A condemnee or other person not illegally in occupancy of real property who moves or moves his personal property as a result of the acquisition for a program or project of such real property, in whole or in part, or as the result of written notice from the acquiring agency of intent to acquire or order to vacate such real property.

 ‘‘Program or project.’’ A program or project undertaken by or for an acquiring agency as to which it has the authority to exercise the power of eminent domain.

 Section 3. Housing replacements by acquiring agency as last resort.

 (a)  General rule.—If comparable replacement sale or rental housing is not available in the neighborhood or community in which a program or project is located and the housing cannot otherwise be made available, as so certified by the county commissioners or, in cities of the first class, by the city council, the acquiring agency may purchase, construct, reconstruct or otherwise provide replacement housing by use of funds authorized for the program or project and for that purpose may exercise its power of eminent domain to acquire property in fee simple or any lesser estate as it deems advisable.

 (b)  Disposition.—Replacement housing provided under this act may be sold, leased, or otherwise disposed of by the acquiring agency, with or without consideration, to displaced persons or to nonprofit, limited dividend or cooperative organizations or public bodies, on such terms and conditions as the acquiring agency deems necessary and proper to effect the relocation of persons displaced by a program or project.

 (c)  Contracts.—The acquiring agency may contact with other public agencies, private individuals, partnerships, corporations and unincorporated associations for the financing, planning, acquisition, development, construction, management, sale, lease or other disposition of replacement housing provided under this act.

 Section 4. Planning and other preliminary expenses for replacement housing.

 In order to encourage and facilitate the construction or rehabilitation of housing to meet the needs of displaced persons, a governmental acquiring agency may make loans and grants to nonprofit, limited dividend or cooperative organizations or public bodies for necessary and reasonable expenses, prior to construction, for planning and obtaining mortgage financing for the rehabilitation or construction of housing for such displaced persons. The loans and grants shall be made prior to the availability of financing for preliminary surveys and analyses of market needs, preliminary site engineering, preliminary architectural fees, legal, appraisal and organizational fees, site acquisition, application and mortgage commitment fees, construction loan fees and discounts, and similar items. Loans to an organization established for profit shall bear interest at market rate determined by the acquiring agency. All other loans and grants shall be without interest. The acquiring agency shall require repayment of loans and grants made under this section, under any terms and conditions as it may require, upon completion of the project or sooner. Except in the case of a loan to an organization established for profit, the acquiring agency may cancel any part or all of a loan and may cancel the repayment provisions of a grant if it determines that a permanent loan to finance the rehabilitation or the construction of such housing cannot be obtained in an amount adequate for repayment of such loan.

 Section 5. Availability of funds.

   (2)  the use of the particular device to protect the property from entry or trespass is reasonable under the circumstances, as the actor believes them to be; and

 Directing Law and Justice Committee to study feasibility of establishing task force to investigate motor vehicle theft.

 WHEREAS, The theft of motor vehicles is becoming a very serious problem throughout this Commonwealth; and

 WHEREAS, The extent of the problem and appropriate measures to eliminate or reduce the widespread theft of motor vehicles may be determined only as a result of an extensive investigation; and

 WHEREAS, Legislation may be necessary to strengthen laws relating to manufacturers’ serial numbers on motor vehicles and to establish a special task force within the Pennsylvania State Police or other agency to investigate the problem relating to the theft of motor vehicles; therefore be it

 RESOLVED, That the Law and Justice Committee conduct a study to determine the feasibility of establishing a special task force in the Pennsylvania State Police or other agency to investigate the extent of the problem relating to the theft of motor vehicles and to determine whether legislation is necessary and appropriate to change or strengthen laws relating to manufacturer’s serial numbers on motor vehicles; and be it further

 RESOLVED, That the Law and Justice Committee make a report of its findings to the House of Representatives within 30 days following the adoption of this resolution, including drafts of any legislation necessary to implement its findings.

A RESOLUTION

 Directing Joint State Government Commission to study veterans functions and programs of Commonwealth agencies.

 WHEREAS, Veterans programs and the supervision of veterans functions are carried on by many Commonwealth agencies. Greater efficiency and a saving to the taxpayers would probably result from a consolidation of responsibility for veterans functions within the Department of Military Affairs. A study of the feasibility thereof would seem to be in order; therefore be it

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

 Directing appointment of joint commission to study injecting natural gas into underground strata.

 WHEREAS, The practice has developed in recent years of injecting natural gas into underground strata accessible through abandoned gas and oil wells for the purpose of storage; and

 WHEREAS, Many of these storage areas are located in the coal mining regions of this Commonwealth in fields in which many abandoned oil and gas wells remain unlocated; and

 WHEREAS, The resultant potential danger to the coal industry is such as to demand the attention of the people of Pennsylvania; therefore be it

 RESOLVED (the Senate concurring), That the Speaker of the House of Representatives appoint five members of the House and the President pro tempore of the Senate appoint five members of the Senate, who together shall constitute a joint commission, to make a thorough study of the practice of injecting natural gas into underground strata for the purpose of storage, giving particular attention to the safety factors involved and to the total area of land affected by the practice; and be it further

§ 19.208. Memorializing Congress.


A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

 WHEREAS, The wages and salaries of postal employees are notoriously low in spite of the efficiency and dispatch with which they have conducted the business of the postal system; and

 WHEREAS, Inevitably, the postal service will lose many of its most able and competent employees to private industry if their wages and salaries are not increased to meet minimum decent living standards; therefore be it

 RESOLVED (the Senate concurring), That the General Assembly memorialize the Congress of the United States to support and enact legislation providing salary increases for postal employees and to take favorable action on House Bill No. 244 and Senate Bill No. 355; and be it further

VETOES


§ 19.361. Prior to adjournment Veto No. 1984-4 of General Assembly.



 HB2160…July 17, 1984
  To the Honorable, the House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania:

 I return herewith, without my approval, House Bill No. 2160, Printer’s No. 2889, entitled ‘‘An act amending the act of March 10, 1970 (No. 66), entitled An act imposing a special tax upon realty of public utilities; providing for distribution of moneys to local taxing authorities in lieu of local real estate taxes; conferring powers and imposing duties upon the Department of Revenue, local assessing and other officials, and public utilities; and providing penalties,’ exempting certain property from the tax.’’

 This bill would remove from the scope of the Public Utility Realty Tax Act (Act 66 approved March 10, 1970) the real property of any municipality or municipality authority furnishing public utility service.

 This bill would indirectly discriminate against residents of municipalities wherein the public utility service was rendered by public utility corporations, and in favor of the residents of municipalities wherein the public utility service was rendered by the municipalities or municipality authorities. The impact of the tax under this bill would be lacking in uniformity as to all the residents of the Commonwealth, inasmuch as those municipalities having tax exempt public utility service would share in the proceeds of the taxes collected in all other municipalities.

 This amendment would also result in a substantial loss of the revenue available to the Commonwealth for distribution to local taxing authorities.

 For these reasons, the bill is not approved.
 DICK THORNBURGH

§ 19.362. Subsequent to adjournment of General Assembly.


 December 30, 1984

 I file herewith, in the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth, with my objections, House Bill No. 1784, Printer’s No. 3590, entitled ‘‘An act amending the act of June 1, 1959 (P. L. 392, No. 201), entitled ‘An act relating to the retirement of State employes; amending, revising, consolidating and changing the laws relating thereto,’ granting credit to certain State employes for certain employment by cities of the second class.’’

 This bill would permit certain State employes, who were previously employed by the registration commission of a second class city, to receive service credit for such employment toward State retirement upon payment of back contributions.

 This bill would mark a serious departure from the customary definition of State employe, for retirement purposes, and would open the door to any employe of a political subdivision rendering public service in any capacity. There is no justification in law or reason to permit the State retirement program to be a catch-all for any public employe not rendering service for or on behalf of the Commonwealth.

 This bill would also confer special benefits on a very restricted class of city employe.

 For these reasons, the bill is not approved.

 WHEREAS, The select committee to investigate the administration of justice, pursuant to House Resolution No. 21, Printer’s No. 291, of the 168th regular session of the General Assembly, is authorized to hold hearings and to issue subpoenas on matters relating to law enforcement and the administration of justice for legislative purposes; and

 WHEREAS, In accordance with the procedure and scope of authority set forth in House Resolution No. 21, the select committee duly scheduled a hearing at 10 a.m. on March 5, 1984, in a continuing investigation of the activities of members of the Pennsylvania State Police; and

 WHEREAS, Previous testimony adduced by the committee dictated further inquiry into the administration of justice and law enforcement and the activities of Lieutenant Angelo J. Carcaci with respect to the years 1981, 1982, and 1983; and

 WHEREAS, Lieutenant Angelo J. Carcaci was called to testify at the time and place set forth but refused on advice of counsel to answer every question asked of him by the committee’s counsel and by the individual members of the committee even though directed and ordered to answer the questions by the chairman of the committee; and

 WHEREAS, Lieutenant Angelo J. Carcaci gave no legal reason nor did he invoke his constitutional right of self-incrimination for refusing to answer the questions; and

 WHEREAS, The House of Representatives takes cognizance of the finding of the select committee that the defiance of the committee is contemptuous; therefore be it

 RESOLVED, That pursuant to the authority granted under section 11 of Article II of the Constitution of Pennsylvania and Rule No. 51 of the Rules of the House of Representatives, and in accordance with the act of June 13, 1842 (P. L. 491, No. 19), (46 P. S.§  61), the House of Representatives direct the Speaker of the House to instruct the Sergeant-at-Arms to bring Angelo J.

 RESOLVED, That if Angelo J.
