HARRISBURG –Rep. Craig Staats (R-Bucks) has been reappointed to the Education, Liquor Control and State Government committees and will serve as deputy chair of the Policy Committee for the new session. Staats was also named again as chairman of the Education Subcommittee on Career and Technical Education (CTE).
“Serving on these committees over the past several sessions has been an honor, and I look forward to using these appointments to continue improving communities and the lives of Pennsylvanians across the Commonwealth,” said Staats.
“My experience on the Education Committee, along with CTE, has helped improve educational opportunities of our students, whether that be traditional or vocational. We are preparing our students for the jobs of today and the future,” said Staats.
The committees are where all bills are first sent and reviewed. During the committee process, amendments can be offered, discussion on the bills takes place and sometimes public or informational hearings are held to gather more information on a legislative issue before a vote is taken on whether to advance a bill for a vote before the full House.
