Capitol Update
Friday, January 06, 2017 The latest news from the State Capitol
2017-18 Session Kicks Off with Swearing-In Day
My son, Matthew, joined me
for swearing-in day.
It was an honor to again take the oath of office Tuesday to represent the people of Cameron, McKean and Potter counties. The state House is now comprised of 121 Republicans and 81 Democrats, including 23 first-term members.

Also on swearing-in day, the House unanimously selected Rep. Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) as speaker of the House for the second consecutive session. The day also included certification of election results, election of the House parliamentarian and adoption of rules that will govern the chamber.

The session’s agenda will include efforts to enact a fiscally responsible budget, ensuring quality education, fighting the opioid epidemic and more. Keep up to date with all the latest news by signing up for updates at or following me on Facebook.
Continuing Agriculture Committee Chairmanship
Also this week, Speaker of the House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) reappointed me chairman of the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee for the 2017-18 legislative session. I look forward to working with my fellow committee members and agriculture leaders to continue our efforts to support the state’s top industry.

Among the issues addressed by the committee last session were efforts to restore funding cuts put forth by the Wolf Administration that nearly forced a shutdown of Penn State’s agriculture extension programs, 4-H and more, as well as new laws to ensure the Clean and Green Program is working as intended; create an agricultural pilot program to research industrial hemp; and update the horse racing law to boost the state’s Thoroughbred breeding industry.
