Langerholc Bill Benefiting Veterans, Sportsmen and Farmers Heads for Enactment into Law

HARRISBURG – Legislation sponsored by Sen. Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35) to benefit farmers, veterans and sportsmen in Pennsylvania was approved by the Senate today and sent to the governor for his signature.

Senate Bill 916 authorizes farmers to make deliveries directly to homes using registered farm vehicles. Under current law, products can only be delivered from a farm to a home using a registered commercial vehicle, placing an unnecessary burden on Pennsylvania farmers by requiring them to maintain a commercial vehicle to meet home delivery demands.

In addition, the bill requires PennDOT to reissue military registration plates at no cost to veterans while also approving the creation of a new license plate to celebrate hunters and fishermen. The Pennsylvania Sportsman plate would cost $40 plus a registration fee, with $14 of the proceeds being deposited into a new Youth Hunting and Fishing Restricted Account to support youth hunting and fishing activities promoted by the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.

“Assisting our farmers with delivery is an issue presented to me during a local legislative Farm Bureau tour several years ago. It is a priority for the Farm Bureau, who I worked alongside with to make this a reality,” Langerholc said. “I’m proud to sponsor this legislation that removes unnecessary barriers for our veterans and farmers while promoting the rich outdoor heritage of our Commonwealth.”
