Proposed Pennsylvania House Legislation HB733

watching this bill   evalutation

This legislation attempts to restore the authority of Sheriffs to arrest but falls short. Could be made acceptable by a pro-Sheriff amendment but in its' current form is not acceptable (p.n. 867).

Sponsor is a Democrat and this legislation is unlikely to move in this session.
