Pennsylvania Joint State Government Commission Study 

The Pennsylvania Joint State Government Commission released its report on Common Interest Ownership Communities in late December 2011, and while the commission’s report falls short in certain goals outlined in the legislature’s resolution, the report is full of useful information and recommendations for community associations and policymakers in Pennsylvania. The PA General Assembly adopted a resolution directing the Joint State Government Commission to update its report in 2022. The updated report will be posted when it is available.
