GENERAL INFORMATION

Welcome to the FOP Legislative Information Pages. Please feel free to browse our top priority Legislation. We realize the importance to our membership is government action related to our pensions, benefits, working conditions and our right to bargain the same. Collective Bargaining is the lifeblood of our organization and is under constant attack by municipal groups and some members of the General Assembly. Other bills that may or would impact you if enacted are being constantly tracked by the committee. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact a committee member listed above.

The New Session Will Begin In January, 2019 With The Swearing-In Of New Legislators.

THE PA STATE LODGE OPPOSES

  • Any legislation amending Act 111 of 1968, which governs the bargaining rights for law enforcement officers.

  • Any legislation affecting a law enforcement officer’s ability to advocate with their chosen representatives and eliminating their right to voluntary deductions and contributions.

  • Any legislation which would change state or municipal law enforcement officer’s pension plans from a defined benefit system to a defined contribution or hybrid system. Law enforcement officers face circumstances that require disability and retirement age protections. Additionally, most Pennsylvania law enforcement officers are not covered through their government employment in the Social Security System. The PA-FOP welcomes the opportunity to provide meaningful discourse with regard to consolidation and sustainability for all plans, especially as it relates to the Pennsylvania law enforcement community and their families.
