HARRISBURG – Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25) today announced the chairmanships and Republican members for each of the 22 Senate Standing Committees for the remainder of the 2013-2014 legislative session.

“Today Senate Standing Committee assignments and chairmanships have been changed as a result of the swearing-in of the Senate’s newest member, Senator Scott Wagner,” Scarnati said.  “Senate Committees are the cornerstone of the Senate and offer the springboard for legislation to be shaped and policies formed.  The following modifications to Committee assignments provide a well thought out balance of members with varied backgrounds and experience in numerous areas serving on each Committee.”
