Argall Reintroduces Anti-Russia Bill in Pennsylvania Senate

The war has eclipsed the one-year mark.

State Sen. Dave Argall (R-29), who represents Schuylkill County, recently reintroduced a bill in the Senate that would block people or companies with ties to Russia and Belarus from doing business with the state.

Argall’s reintroduction of Senate Bill 282 coincides with the one-year anniversary of the war between Russia and Ukraine.

The bill would prevent Pennsylvania state government from “dealing with persons associated with the Government of Russia or the Government of Belarus; and imposing duties on the Treasury Dept. and the Attorney General.”

SB 282 would prevent companies and people with these associations from receiving state contracts, grants, or state tax credits.

The bill’s been referred to the Senate State Government Committee. Argall originally introduced the bill at this time last year.

“My constituents have been clear – they do not want their tax dollars supporting the atrocities and war crimes committed by Russian forces. I hope to see this bill considered soon, to show the people of Ukraine that Pennsylvania supports their heroic efforts to defend their democracy,” Argall says.
