While you are working in your business, PRLA is working for you. PRLA tracks issues at the federal, state, and local levels that impact you, your business, your employees, and your bottom line. Hundreds of pieces of legislation are introduced each year. PRLA flags any issue that could even marginally affect the industry but we prioritize bills that impact hospitality, liquor reform, and travel and tourism. In addition to challenging legislation, PRLA also works to move forward with legislative items that can positively impact you and your business.

Stay up-to-date with the latest industry news, trends, events, and more.

The PRLA Policy Committee

The PRLA Policy Committee, which is made up of members from all sectors of the industry, annually meets to outline PRLA’s legislative priorities over the next three years.

Legislation Made Easy

Proposed legislation can often be tough to read and understand. It can easily reach 90 or more pages and be filled with jargon, definitions, and strikethrough text. PRLA’s government affairs team pares it down into everyday language for you to easily understand in our Issue Summaries.

Your Voice Matters

As the voice of Pennsylvania’s hospitality industry, PRLA and our members are called on to testify at legislative hearings on topics that impact your business and your industry.
