HARRISBURG – State Rep. Tim Krieger (R-Delmont) announced today that he has been selected to chair the Subcommittee on Courts of the Judiciary Committee in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Krieger was appointed to replace former Rep. Glen Grell (R-Cumberland) who resigned from the House on April 30 to serve as the new executive director of the Public School Employees’ Retirement System.

“I am greatly honored to have been chosen to chair the Subcommittee on Courts,” Krieger said. “I am looking forward to working with my fellow committee members to deliver legislative solutions that will improve both the effectiveness and efficiency of Pennsylvania’s judicial system.”

The Subcommittee on Courts is responsible for addressing merit selection proposals, the establishment of problem-solving courts (for example, drug courts or DUI courts), judiciary funding and fee proposals, legislation creating new judicial positions and issues dealing with court policies and procedures.

Krieger has served on the House Judiciary Committee since 2009. He also currently serves on the House Environmental Resources and Energy, Health and Liquor Control committees. This appointment is Krieger’s second subcommittee chairmanship, having previously served as chair of the House Judiciary’s Subcommittee on Crime and Corrections.
