HARRISBURG – The PA House unanimously passed legislation sponsored by House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff of Centre & Mifflin Counties that would divest the Commonwealth from financial assets of Russia and Belarus and prohibit future investment of state funds in financial assets of those countries. Benninghoff said as the governments of Russia and Belarus continue their unprovoked military atrocity and human rights catastrophe against the people and the government of Ukraine, PA is speaking with one voice against this ongoing crisis and is joining with the rest of the free world in taking steps that substantively marginalize Vladimir Putin and his domestic and geopolitical allies. House Bill 2447 now heads to the PA Senate.
