Wolf signs bill increasing base active duty pay for state National Guard

Gov. Tom Wolf has signed legislation to increase the minimum base active duty pay for members of the Pennsylvania National Guard. 

HB 602 raises the minimum base pay from $75 to $100 per day when the governor activates any part of the Pennsylvania National Guard for state active duty to respond to disasters and emergencies.

According to a press release by the governor, the increase to a base minimum pay of $100 a day will make the pay scale more equitable to the pay scale of today, and is yet another way to compensate our National Guard personnel for this selfless sacrifices to both Commonwealth and country in time of disaster or emergency.  

The minimum base pay figure was last increased in 1996 from $45 to $75 per day.
