Hahn Appointed to House Appropriations Committee
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Marcia Hahn (R-Bushkill Township) will be playing a key role in the budget process as the result of her appointment to the House Appropriations Committee for the 2017-18 session.

“This bipartisan committee’s primary focus involves developing the state budget,” said Hahn. “Our first responsibility will quickly follow Gov. Tom Wolf’s Feb. 7 address, when we hear testimony from various state agencies that are funded by the budget. The committee will have the opportunity to question them about their spending practices, in an effort to gauge levels of appropriation going forward.”

Hahn’s responsibilities will also include membership on three other committees - Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Children and Youth, and Tourism and Recreational Development. In addition, she has been re-appointed to the position of majority deputy whip, and will also serve as a deputy chairman on the House Republican Policy Committee.

“Serving as deputy whip means keeping Majority Whip Bryan Cutler of Lancaster County informed about problems that members may have, or issues that might have an effect on the legislative agenda and on the caucus as a whole,” Hahn added. “My appointment to the House Republican Policy Committee will require traveling across the state and taking part in hearings and roundtable discussions with key stakeholders in order to develop policies on important issues.

“I’m looking forward to taking on these additional statewide duties, while also serving the residents of the 138th Legislative District.”

Questions about Hahn’s legislative responsibilities or any state government issues may be directed to her district office at (610) 746-2100.
