New law allows Pa. hunters to use motorized wheelchairs

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Pennsylvania hunters with disabilities will be allowed to use motorized wheelchairs under legislation that has been signed into law.

Act 76, formerly House Bill 698, allows disabled hunters to use motorized wheelchairs and have their firearms loaded while the wheelchair is moving.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Jim Marshall (R-Beaver/Butler) said under previous law, hunters with a disabled person permit were allowed to use vehicles as hunting blinds, but their firearm had to be unloaded any time the vehicle was in motion. He said there was no exemption for motorized wheelchairs.

House Bill 698 passed the state House in October and the state Senate in November, both by unanimous vote. It will become effective in 60 days.
