Bill to allow sale of armories passed by Pa. House

A bill that would allow the sale of 12 armories across Pennsylvania, including
the Lancaster and Waynesboro armories, has been given unanimous approval by the
state House of Representatives.

House Bill 1112 authorizes the Department of General
Services, with approval of the Department of
Military and Veterans' Affairs, to sell the armory properties to the
highest bidder.

All proceeds would be directed to the Treasury Armory
Fund.

Major
General Wesley Craig, Adjutant General of the Pennsylvania National
Guard, said Pennsylvania has a large number of excess armories that are old and decrepit
and could be sold with passage of the bill. He said the money would be used for maintenance of existing facilities.

House Bill 1112 now heads to the Senate for consideration.
