Senators want to sell naming rights to state office buildings to help offset operational costs

Senators want to sell naming rights to state office buildings to help offset operational costs

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania owns and leases a lot of office space across the state: 16 million square feet in total. This week, two senators from different sides of Pennsylvania—Sen. Dave Argall (R-Schuylkill) and Sen. Randy Vulakovich (R-Allegheny)—unveiled their proposal to sell the naming rights to just about every state-owned office building help offset the operational costs of these facilities.

 

The proposal comes out of recommendations from a report issued by the Joint State Government Commission at the end of last year in response to a resolution sponsored by the two senators seeking answers to questions they had about reports of unused/unmanned state office space still requiring maintenance, upkeep, and—most importantly—money by the Commonwealth.
