New PA Senate bill would help farmers deliver agricultural products directly to homes

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Senate has approved a bill which would make it easier for farmers to deliver products directly to customers’ homes.

If this new bill becomes law, it could provide some help for struggling farmers by helping them save money.

The legislation was introduced by local State Senator Wayne Langerholc, and it would allow farmers who have a farm vehicle registration plate to deliver milk and other agricultural products directly to both businesses and homes.

Currently, only deliveries to businesses are allowed with farm plates. Langerholc’s bill passed the Senate unanimously.

It requires approval by the State House of Representatives and the Governor to become law.
