PA Safe Caucus leaders Wednesday announced that a set of public hearings have been set in April to explore legislation on gun safety and reform.

“It has become acutely apparent that measures need to be taken to prevent these situations from happening in the future,” state House Judiciary Committee Chairman Ron Marsico, R-Dauphin, wrote in a letter Tuesday inviting House lawmakers to testify.

The hearings will be held in Room 140 of the Capitol from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, April 9; 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 10; and 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 11. A fourth hearing is scheduled for April 12, with the time and location yet to be determined.

“We look forward to a robust, honest and fair discussion about the specific actions we will take to turn the tide against gun violence and deliver on our promise as elected officials to keep Pennsylvanians safe,” said PA Safe Caucus co-chairman Dan Frankel, D-Allegheny.
