- Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Northampton) today announced his first committee chairmanship and will serve as the Republican chairman of the House Commerce Committee.
“I’m honored to serve in this position of leadership within the state House,” Emrick said. “Serving as chairman of a committee is an enormous responsibility and I look forward to the upcoming session.”
When legislation is introduced in the state House, the speaker assigns it to one of the various standing committees. The committee then may hold hearings, propose amendments and decide whether or not the bill is worthy of consideration by the full House of Representatives.
“I’m excited about this opportunity. I look forward to working with the members of the committee to advance policies that are critical to improving the lives of Pennsylvanians.” said Emrick.
