PA Lawmakers Want to Increase Fine for Killing a Bald Eagle


HARRISBURG – The financial penalty for killing a bald eagle in Pennsylvania could become ten times more expensive.

Both the state House and Senate have approved a bill that would increase the fine for killing a bald eagle in the Keystone state from $200 to $2,000. That amount would be on top of all fines or punishment at the federal level.

The bill will now head to Governor Josh Shapiro’s desk for his approval or veto.
