PA House Passes Electronic Heating Oil Delivery Ticket Legislation


The state House last week unanimously passed legislation (House Bill 1889) that would give oil heat companies the option of providing delivery ticket and invoice information to customers by electronic means. This statue change would be a significant amendment to Title 3 (Agriculture) Section 4108 which falls under the oversight of PA Bureau of Ride and Measurement Standards.

Introduced by Rep. Steve Malagari (D-Montgomery), HB 1889 has now been sent to the state Senate for its consideration and is awaiting committee assignment. The PPA has been strongly in support of modernizing the oil heat delivery system in the state and will work for its final passage. The PA Department of Agriculture supports this bill.
