Rothman Announces Committee Assignments for 2017-18 Legislative Session
HARRISBURG – Rep. Greg Rothman (R-Cumberland) was assigned to serve on four standing House committees during the 2017-18 legislative session: Children and Youth, Liquor Control, Transportation and Urban Affairs.

“In addition to continue to serving on the Children and Youth as well as Urban Affairs as I did in the last legislative session, I have also been assigned to two committees that greatly impact the Commonwealth. There are many opportunities to improve the Pennsylvanian experience as a member of the Liquor Control and Transportation committees,” Rothman said. “Particularly, I will be pursuing legislation to address Pennsylvania’s growing budget crisis through additional liquor modernization efforts.”

The committees provide legislative oversight and help shape the language in bills that fall under their areas of responsibility.

The House Children and Youth Committee studies adoption and child protection issues, along with child day care services, infant/child/mother health issues, juvenile delinquency, and adolescent and teen problems. It played an integral role in previous sessions to update the state’s child protection laws and continues to monitor those laws to make any necessary updates.

The House Liquor Control Committee is responsible for issues relating to the administration of alcoholic beverage licenses and the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages.

The House Transportation Committee is responsible for reviewing vehicle code regulations, mandatory insurance and coverage minimums, rules of the road, parking and local enforcements, mass transit codes, rail issues, PennDOT planning, oversight of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, airports, scenic highways and highway naming.

The House Urban Affairs Committee reviews legislation affecting the state’s largest cities including housing; urban redevelopment; economic development; land use planning and zoning; growth management; infrastructure financing; and city services such as police, fire, sewage and water.
