House Docket Number 2741
An Act Providing a Homeless Bill of Rights
Lead Sponsor: Representative William Smitty Pignatelli
House Docket Number 691
- An Act to End Child Homelessness

Thank you for your consideration of this request. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the bills or co-sponsorship.
As this new legislative session gets underway, we look forward to continuing to collaborate with you to make greater strides toward reducing and ending homelessness across the Commonwealth!
