Sen. Mensch Appointed to Key Committees
Forks and Palmer representative will chair Senate Aging and Youth Committee.
State Sen. Bob Mensch (R-24) has been appointed to serve on several key committees for the 2013-14 legislative session.
"It’s in the committees that much of the work producing sound legislation is done,” said Mensch. “This is where bills are vetted, examined, amended and improved. I look forward to serving on these committees during what looks to be a challenging and exciting legislative session.”
Mensch represents Forks and Palmer Townships.
Last month, Senator Mensch was tapped by Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati to serve as Chairman of the Senate Aging and Youth Committee.
In addition to the new post, the senator will again serve as Vice Chairman of the Senate Public, Health and Welfare Committee and was again appointed to the vital Senate Appropriations Committee.
As in the previous session, Mensch will continue to serve on the Communications and Technology, Intergovernmental Operations, and the Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness committees.
In addition, he co-chairs the Senate Economy, Business and Jobs Caucus -- a special panel created to develop initiatives aimed at creating and sustaining good jobs in Pennsylvania-- and represents the Senate on the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee.
