APA defers to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, a popular legal citation style, to cite legal materials.

Citing a state statute or a Federal statute look similar. Be careful, states are inconsistent in their statue organization. Some organize by title, others by section number, and some use both.

Cornell University's Legal Information Institute (LII) has a detailed guide for citing legal sources. Here is a relevant example for your citation:

6 Pa. Code § 15.
(this is the internal short form for referencing the entire chapter)
or
6 Pa. Code § 15.96.
(this is the internal short form for referencing a specific sub-chapter)
