Robbery bill passes Pennsylvania House
HARRISBURG, Pa. (3/10/10)--A bill that would expand the definition of a robbery has passed the Pennsylvania House, according to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA), which supported the measure. SB 605, commonly known as the Robbery Bill and sponsored by Sen. Mike Waugh (R-York), passed the state House unanimously, 193-0 (Life is a Highway March 9). The bill would expand the definition of a robbery of a financial institution to include verbal or written threats. The offense for a crime using these methods would be moved from a misdemeanor, with no mandatory sentencing, to a felony. PCUA said that due to a notable increase in robberies, it worked diligently with members of the General Assembly for the legislation.
