(HARRISBURG) – Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25) today announced the Republican members for each of the 22 Senate Standing Committees for the 2017-2018 legislative session.

“Senate Committees are the cornerstone of the Senate and provide a proven environment for legislation to be shaped and policies formed,” Scarnati said. “Our Chamber is fortunate to have many members from diverse backgrounds who bring their expertise and knowledge to Harrisburg.  We have many challenging issues to tackle this year, and these committees are where much of the work will begin.”
