Delozier Named to Appropriations Committee and Three Others
HARRISBURG – Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) this week announced she has been appointed to the House Appropriations Committee for the 2017-18 legislative session. Her other committee assignments are Commerce, Judiciary, and Labor and Industry.
“I look forward to the challenge of working on the Appropriations Committee,” Delozier said. “With the current budget situation, we must work diligently to craft a budget that protects taxpayers and restructures government for decades to come. In addition, I’m pleased to be able to continue my service on the Judiciary and Labor and Industry committees.”
As many parts of the state budget originate in the House of Representatives, the Appropriations Committee is the primary committee of the House tasked with overseeing state government spending, state fiscal policies and developing a state budget each fiscal year.
The Commerce Committee is responsible for originating legislation and overseeing implementation of programs which affect Pennsylvania companies. The committee has primary jurisdiction over corporate governance through the business corporation law, as well as regulation of offers of sale and credit through such statutes as the Goods and Services Installment Sales Act, the Unfair Sales Act, and the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Act. Also, the committee deals with economic development and banking issues.
The House Judiciary Committee focuses on issues and legislation relating to the Judicial Code, the Crimes Code and the Domestic Relations Code. Some of the topics overseen by the committee include identity theft, firearms laws, domestic violence, child abuse laws, state prisons and criminal law.
The Labor and Industry Committee focuses on issues impacting jobs across the state. Legislation the committee deals with includes unemployment compensation, job training, child labor laws, workers’ compensation and the Prevailing Wage Act.
The 88th Legislative District includes Lower Allen and Upper Allen townships and the boroughs of Lemoyne, Mechanicsburg, New Cumberland, Shiremanstown and Wormleysburg.
