HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania House Republican Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) on Tuesday made the following comment upon the announcement Rep. Mark Rozzi (D-Berks) has resigned as Speaker of the House:

“As former Speaker of the House and the twice-elected Leader of the House Republican Caucus, I know that trust is the basis of a successful legislative leader and provides the ability to move our chamber forward. Unfortunately, despite the attempt to find a unique solution for an evenly-divided House, Rep. Rozzi openly broke that trust essentially from the moment he was elected.

“Right now, the House is in dire need of a reset, and I remain committed to working with anyone who is willing to work with us to find solutions. However, the only way we will be able to move forward is by lowering the temperatures that have risen due to an unforeseen lack of integrity that has set back our ability to work across the aisle. 

“It is time to move on. I hope our colleagues on the other side of the aisle will join us in doing so.”
