State Regulatory Updates

In addition to advocacy with the legislature, PHA advocates on behalf of our members with state agencies that impact our industry such as the Departments of Health, Aging, Human Services and State.

Get involved! Members are encouraged to submit their own comments on proposed regulatory changes and may also take part in public hearings. Contact PHA's Government Relations Director, Katie Dotto at [email protected] or 717-975-9448 ext. 30 today!
