State Issues

On July 10, the Pennsylvania governor signed an executive order authorizing state agencies to conduct administrative proceedings remotely. State executive and independent agencies are authorized to (i) limit in-person access to administrative proceedings to protect the health and safety of agency personnel and members of the public and (ii) use video, telephonic, or other online conferencing equipment or services to conduct administrative hearings without the consent of the parties, at the discretion of the presiding officer or hearing examiner. The agencies must establish procedures for conducting in-person, video, and telephonic administrative hearings and publish them on the agency webpage. The order will remain in effect until the disaster emergency expires or is terminated.
