HARRISBURG – The House Majority Policy Committee announced this week that first-term legislator Rep. Kate Klunk (R-York) will serve as a deputy policy chair for the committee during the 2015-16 legislative session.

“This appointment is truly an honor, especially for a freshman legislator,” Klunk said. “Our Commonwealth is facing many challenges, and this will allow members of the committee to learn more about these challenges from people who are knowledgeable about each subject. I am excited to help guide the direction of the legislation that will be acted upon throughout the next two years.”

The committee travels across the state, conducting hearings and roundtable discussions about important issues to gather testimony and information from key stakeholders. Klunk will attend these hearings and work with her colleagues in the House Republican Caucus to develop policies to address the issues that matter most to Pennsylvania citizens.

“Although my personal priorities will be issues that impact residents in the 169th District like property tax reform, I view this as an excellent opportunity to hear from citizens in every corner of the state on how we can work together to make Pennsylvania a better place to live, work and raise a family,” Klunk added. “To ensure a bright future for the people of this Commonwealth, we must fully understand how key issues impact everyone.”

Klunk noted several issues that she hopes will be a part of statewide discussions, such as reforming the state’s public pension systems, restoring fiscal discipline in state government, revitalizing Pennsylvania’s business climate to create good, family-sustaining jobs, and improving the quality of educational opportunities.
