HARRISBURG – Rep. Jack Rader Jr. (R-Monroe) today announced that he has been assigned to four House committees, including Children and Youth, Human Services, Local Government, and Tourism and Recreational Development.

“These assignments capitalize on my professional background and so many of the issues important to people across Monroe County,” Rader said. “In serving for nearly three decades as a township supervisor, I know I will bring a unique perspective to the House Local Government Committee.”

The House Local Government Committee reviews and considers legislation affecting county and municipal governments across the Commonwealth.

The Human Services Committee considers legislation related to programs and services that help persons with disabilities, those who suffer from alcohol or drug addiction, and the professionals who help these communities.

The Children and Youth Committee works with the House Judiciary Committee, as well as the state Department of Human Services and Office of Children, Youth and Families, to oversee child day care programs and adoption and foster care issues.

“I am also eager to serve on the Tourism and Recreational Development Committee,” Rader added. “Tourism is such an important part of Monroe County’s economy. I look forward to working with my colleagues to both tourism and recreational opportunities across the state.”
