HARRISBURG - House Republican leaders announced committee assignments for the 2021-22 Legislative Session, reappointing Rep. Craig Staats (R-Bucks) to the Education, Finance, Liquor Control and State Government committees. Staats was also recently named a majority deputy whip in the new session.
In addition to providing legislative oversight in their specific areas of responsibility, committees work to vet, strengthen and advance legislation for consideration in the House.
“It has been a privilege to serve on these committees and I am happy for the opportunity to continue my work over the next two years,” said Staats. “These committees have enabled me to help improve vocational education in Pennsylvania and prepare our students for the jobs of today and the future.
“Through my committee work, I have also been a clear and consistent voice for small businesses in our Commonwealth, particularly the hospitality industry,” said Staats. “The pandemic has put significant stress on restaurants and hotels and the people they employ. As someone who has spent many years in the restaurant industry, I understand the hardship this pandemic has caused, and I am grateful for the opportunity to stand up for those who need our help.”
