Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill) has been appointed by Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-Jefferson) to serve on five standing committees in the Senate of Pennsylvania for the 2019-2020 legislative session.

Argall, who will continue to chair the Senate Majority Policy Committee, will also serve as Vice Chair of Urban Affairs and Housing and as a member of the following committees: Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Appropriations, Community and Economic and Development, and Finance.

“I am honored to represent the people of Berks and Schuylkill Counties on these committees. These assignments will be very valuable in assisting with the most pressing issues we face in East Central Pennsylvania,” Argall said. “I look forward to using my seat on these committees to pursue issues such as elimination of school property taxes, downtown revitalization, fighting welfare fraud, and cutting unnecessary spending in the state budget.”

“The work accomplished by Senate committees helps set the agenda of the entire General Assembly,” Argall said. “My goal will be to ensure the perspectives of this district are aggressively represented as we debate some of the most important issues facing Pennsylvania.”
