Recognizing the sacrifices of Pennsylvania National Guard members,
The State House on May 22 voted 198-0 to pass HB 2168, which would increase the minimum state active duty pay from $75 per day to $100 per day for Pennsylvania National Guard members.
Prime sponsor is Nicholas A Miccarelli (R-162) whose district lies in southeastern Delaware County.
It would be the first increase in minimum active duty pay in more than 15 years and would affect how guard members are compensated for responding to state emergencies.
The bill is awaiting action in the Senate.
