An Improving Economy

Pennsylvania’s General Fund revenue collections for December were $162 million more than expected. Corporate tax, sales tax and personal income tax projections alone came in a combined $112 million above estimates.

Year-to-date General Fund collections of $13.3 billion are above the official estimate by $271 million.

Swearing-In Day

On Tuesday, I was among members of the state House to be officially sworn into office to serve in the General Assembly for the 2015-16 session. Taking the oath of office to represent the residents of the 75th District is a great honor. I am humbled by the trust placed in me by those who send me to Harrisburg and I embrace the responsibilities associated with serving as their voice in the General Assembly.

I have also been reappointed to serve as deputy chairman of the House Majority Policy Committee. I’m looking forward to again working with Policy Chairman Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin), who I know very well. Working on this committee allows me to further investigate major issues facing Pennsylvania and work with fellow committee members to formulate solutions for the betterment of the Commonwealth.

The Policy Committee conducts hearings and roundtable discussions across the state about important issues to gather testimony and information from key stakeholders. I attend these hearings and work with his colleagues in the House Republican Caucus to develop policies to address those issues.

This photo was taken on the House floor as I nominated state Rep. Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) to serve as Speaker of the House. Click here to listen to my nominating speech.
