HARRISBURG – The PA House State Government Committee passed legislation sponsored by House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff that would divest the Commonwealth financial assets from Russia and Belarus and prohibit future investment of state funds in financial assets of those countries. Benninghoff said the advancement of this legislation reflects the broad bipartisan support here in PA, not just for the people of Ukraine, but for taking serious steps to ensure the Commonwealth’s financial resources do not further Russia’s war effort or global ambitions. House Bill 2447 now goes to the full House for a vote.
