McGinnis Bill to Authorize Sale of Local Armories



A bill sponsored by state Rep. John McGinnis that would authorize the conveyance of 12 armories across Pennsylvania, including the Frankstown Armory in Altoona, is on its way to the governor’s desk after a unanimous concurrence vote Sunday in the House of Representatives.
 
House Bill 1112 authorizes the Pennsylvania Department of General Services (DGS), with the approval of the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans’ Affairs, to convey 12 armory properties to the highest bidder, with all proceeds directed to the State Treasury Armory Fund.
 
The measure requires that DGS include a covenant in each deed prohibiting the property from being used as a licensed gaming facility. The oil, gas and mineral rights associated with the properties will be retained by DGS on behalf of the Commonwealth.
