Governor Will Sign Hazing Bill

Gov. Tom Wolf says he will sign anti-hazing legislation which came about following a deadly incident at Penn State. The bill won final state Senate passage, after concurring with amendments passed in the House. The bill is a comprehensive rewrite of Pennsylvania's hazing law. Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman says one of the most important parts is the additional flexibility offered to prosecutors in hazing cases. Corman has championed the bill on behalf of the family of 19-year-old Tim Piazza, who died after a night of heavy drinking and hazing at a Penn State fraternity party in February 2017.
