Legislative Data Processing Center
Who We Are
The Legislative Data Processing Center (LDPC) is a service agency of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Created by the act of December 10, 1968 ( P.L.1158, No. 365 ), the purpose of the agency is to establish and operate computer systems capable of storing and retrieving all of the financial, factual, procedural and legal information necessary to serve all of the committees, officers and agencies of the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
Oversight is provided by a Legislative Data Processing Committee consisting of four members of the House of Representatives, four members of the Pennsylvania Senate, the Secretary of the Senate, and the House Parliamentarian.
Daily responsibilities are handled by the Executive Director. Computer support is provided 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
Act 3 of 2008 establishes 19 types of legislative records which are available to the public. The types of legislative records available under the Right-to-Know Law are spelled out in Section 102 of the Act 3, in the definition of "legislative record." To make an official request for legislative records from the LDPC, your request needs to be in writing (postal mail, fax, or email) in order to pursue the relief and remedies provided for in the RTKL.
