HARRISBURG – Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) took the oath of office Tuesday to begin his fourth term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
For the 2021-22 Legislative Session, Schemel’s priorities include ensuring state spending does not outpace the rate of inflation, ensuring the accuracy and accountability of our elections, improving the Legislature’s transparency to taxpayers, and supporting municipal government and school leaders as they make decisions impacting our communities.
“Pennsylvania faces significant challenges related to the impact of COVID-19 and Gov. Wolf’s corresponding business shutdown orders. As we look forward to a gradual return to normalcy in 2021, we need to look critically at decisions made over the last year so that we never repeat the mistakes and lost opportunities of 2020,” Schemel said.
