Survey on the Pennsylvania Downtown Location Law

Background: State law since 2000 requires Pennsylvania state agencies to locate within a downtown of a municipality, with a few exceptions. (Read the Pennsylvania Downtown Location Law here.) The goal of the law is to reverse downtown blight and abandonment trends that were common in the late 1990s and still continue to this day. The theory is that state employees who work in those facilities can help downtown businesses to prosper by supporting the economy.

This survey is designed to measure your interpretation of the effectiveness and utilization of this law to help determine if any changes are needed to further improve the statute.
