Bills Address Kin Remains & Police Canines

HARRISBURG – A bill is on its way to the state Senate to clarify what should happen when surviving family members can’t agree on what to do about their dead relative’s remains. The PA House passed House Bill 1925 to put the decision up to a majority vote of the people with standing as next of kin. If two or more people with equal standing can’t make a majority decision, the final say will be in the hands of a judge. Also, the state House approved a bill to make killing or torturing a police dog a second-degree felony. House Bill 2026 would impose up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.
