Senate votes to devote mansion to veterans, Guard families

Lieutenant Governors Mansion

The lieutenant governor's residence is in Lebanon County.

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania state senators have voted unanimously to transfer control of what had been the lieutenant governor's residence at Fort Indiantown Gap to the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.

The Senate voted Wednesday to send the House a bill directing the property be used to support veterans' programs and National Guard families.

The current lieutenant governor, John Fetterman, has chosen to rent an apartment in Harrisburg and opened the Fort Indiantown Gap home's pool this summer for hundreds of children to swim.

Fetterman, a Democrat who presides over the Senate, says he supports the bill and looks forward to signing the legislation. He says the swimming program is expected to continue indefinitely.

The 2,400-square-foot State House is on the National Guard base property about 25 miles northeast of Harrisburg.
