Baker Takes Oath of Office, Reappointed Chairman of House Health Committee

State Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) this week took the oath of the office to serve his 13th term as a Pennsylvania state representative for the 68th Legislative District. He was also reappointed to his fourth term as chairman of the House Health Committee by Speaker of the House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny).

“I am honored to have been re-elected to serve as state representative for the people of Tioga, Bradford and Potter counties,” said Baker. “It continues to be a pleasure to represent the views and interests of the folks living and working in the Northern Tier.”

The House Health Committee deals with issues such as abortion, disease management, stem cell research, health savings accounts, hospital-acquired infections, Medical Assistance, patient safety, pharmaceutical issues, telemedicine and much more.

“We have ushered through many important bills in the House Health Committee that have been signed into law, such as my legislation to make oral anti-cancer medications more affordable and my bill to ensure more patients of the baby-boomer generation are informed by their doctors about the risks of Hepatitis C,” said Baker. “The committee looks at a number of vital health care issues each year and we have been successful in getting many of these bills signed into law that will help improve health care in the Commonwealth.

“I look forward to the 2017-18 session, when we are sure to take up bills concerning opioid addiction and changes from the federal government that are sure to impact ObamaCare,” said Baker. “This is a committee that is highly active and that I am honored to lead.”
