Brown Appointed to Serve as Deputy Policy Chairman for 2013-14 Legislative Session


Harrisburg, PA – Charged with closely reviewing policy issues impacting the Commonwealth, Rep. Rosemary M. Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) today announced she was recently appointed to serve as deputy policy chairman during the 2013-14 legislative session.

“I am honored and pleased to have been appointed to this position to examine policy issues, including job creation and improving the business climate in our local communities and all of Pennsylvania,” said Brown. “Many of the welfare reform and job creation initiatives that have been implemented over the past few years have originated in the House Majority Policy Committee.”

Through a variety of hearings, roundtable discussions and policy tours, the House Majority Policy Committee exists to provide a broad array of research and foundational information regarding legislative policy. The committee works in conjunction with the state House standing committees on several subject matters, including job creation, liquor privatization and Marcellus Works.

This committee is chaired by Rep. Dave Reed (R-Indiana), and the deputy policy chairs are representatives, like Brown, from a wide variety of professions and locations throughout the Commonwealth. They are chosen by House leadership to serve with the chairman and lead on key legislative issues and responsible policy development. The diversity of this group provides a varied assessment on matters facing the state and helps develop consensus on policy solutions.
