HARRISBURG – Building on bipartisan support for legislation allowing school sports in PA to resume, Lancaster County Sen. Scott Martin will soon introduce a bill to ensure other indoor and outdoor recreational sports and activities can continue safely. Last week, the PA Senate approved a bill giving school districts the final decision on whether sports could resume and whether spectators would be allowed to attend. The bill passed with a veto-proof majority in both chambers. While House Bill 2787 paves the way for school sports to resume with proper safety protocols, the bill does not apply to recreational leagues and other sports that may not be directly affiliated with a school, such as hockey. Martin’s bill would clarify that recreational sports and activities can continue at increased occupancy limits under CDC safety guidelines.
