PENNSYLVANIA HOUSE OF
State Rep. David Parker (R-Monroe) has been appointed to serve on the following four standing committees for the 2015-16 legislative session: Children and Youth, Commerce, Environmental Resources and Energy, and Gaming Oversight. Responsibilities of the House Children and Youth Committee include interacting with the Health, Human Services and Judiciary committees in dealing with issues and concerns of the 18-year-old-and-under population. The Commerce Committee is responsible for originating legislation and the oversight of programs which affect Pennsylvania companies and state economic development law. Having a voice on the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee will provide an opportunity to focus efforts on harnessing these resources while minimizing the impact on our environment. “A seat on the Gaming Oversight Committee pairs well with having Mount Airy Casino and Resort in our district. From small games of chance to table games and slot machines, the gaming industry in Pennsylvania must be held to the highest standards, and the committee seeks to ensure that integrity,” Parker said. The 115th Legislative District includes Stroud, Price, Paradise, and Coolbaugh townships, and the boroughs of Stroudsburg, and East Stroudsburg.
