HARRISBURG – Susan Boyle, who has devoted 28 years to the House Republican Caucus, was named director of Research for the House Republican Caucus. The appointment was announced today by House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) and Speaker of the House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny). She replaces the late Bruce Hanson.

“I look forward to continuing the work of Bruce Hanson. His legacy is a strong example of professionalism that set a standard for our staff,” Boyle said. “My hope is that we will continue to attract high-quality employees to carry out the important work we do on behalf of the people of our great Commonwealth.”

Boyle was most recently the assistant director of the research department and the executive director of the House State Government Committee. She is a graduate of Bucknell University.

“I want to express sincere gratitude to the great people who make this department successful and look forward to the continuing efforts to modernize our department and increase collaboration within our caucus and the chamber as a whole,” Boyle said.

The House Republican research department staffs 23 standing committees and prepares and studies the thousands of pieces of legislation before the chamber.

Boyle is the proud mother of two adult sons, Sean and Ryan.
