Rep. Schemel Comments on Legislation to Improve Women’s Access to Health Care - 5/9/2017
Legislation designed to change the way the state allocates money for family planning has been unveiled in Harrisburg. At a press conference held on Tuesday at the State Capitol, Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) announced that he is co-sponsoring legislation that would prioritize public funding for women’s health. Schemel said his bill would allow healthcare providers which at one time only provided diagnostic services to treat conditions as well.
Rep. Schemel Participates in Reset of Pennsylvania’s Pension Debt Clock - 1/25/2017
Lawmakers joined with pension reform advocates Tuesday in the state capitol to participate in a reset of Pennsylvania’s Pension Debt Clock and call for a real solution to the state’s public pension crisis. The clock was unveiled last year to bring attention to the unfunded liability of Pennsylvania’s two public pension systems. The pension debt balance is now over $70 billion, an amount that has grown over the past year by nearly $30 million a day. At the event Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) called for swift legislative action to help the Commonwealth meet its obligations to the financially troubled retirement plans before the debt burden becomes unsurmountable.
Schemel Comments on Opioid Crisis in PA - 9/29/2016

Rep. Schemel Reacts to Governor’s Budget Announcement - 3/24/2016
At a press conference held at the State Capitol on Wednesday, Gov. Tom Wolf announced that he intends to allow a budget approved by the General Assembly last week to become law without his signature. The move signals the end of a nine-month fiscal impasse in Pennsylvania. The 30 billion dollar spending plan allows money to flow to schools, corrections, and agriculture programs that had been held hostage during negotiations.
Rep. Schemel Comments on Governor’s Budget Address - 2/9/2016
House lawmakers offered their reactions to Gov. Tom Wolf’s spending proposal for fiscal year 2016-17, which he announced today in an address before a joint session of the General Assembly. The governor’s budget plan would increase taxes on working Pennsylvanians and employers by $3.6 billion and spending by 10 percent, or $3 billion, and calls for $33.3 billion in total spending. To support his proposed spending plan the governor has proposed 15 new tax increases, including a retroactive increase in the Personal Income Tax on Pennsylvania workers.
Rep. Schemel Comments on Fiscal Lifelines to Release Funding for PA Schools and Human Service Providers - 10/19/2015
Since Gov. Tom Wolf’s veto of the state budget on June 30, state and federal dollars have been bottled up and accumulating in the state Treasury. State Reps. Stephen Bloom (R-Cumberland) and Dan Moul (R-Adams) have announced a package of freestanding fiscal lifeline bills that would release much needed funding for schools and human service providers.
Rep. Schemel Comments on Defeat of the Governor’s Tax Increase Plan - 10/7/2015
The Pennsylvania House voted to defeat the Governor’s tax increase proposal Wednesday in Harrisburg. The latest version of the tax legislation would have increased the personal income taxes by 16 percent, from 3.07 percent to 3.57 percent, and would have levied one of the highest tax rates on the production of natural gas in the nation. House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against the Governor’s tax plan and called for action on a state budget that will balance without increasing the burden on hard-working Pennsylvanians. Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) offered the following comments following the vote on the bill.
Rep. Schemel Comments on Veto Override Efforts to Ensure Funding for Service Programs - 8/26/2015
In an effort to restore funding to vital human service and education programs, the Pennsylvania House on Tuesday attempted a line by line override of the Governor’s blanket veto of the state budget. Funding for these human services providers and contractors has been suspended due to the budget veto. Lawmakers said they are working line by line to ensure these crucial programs, that would be funded at the same level the Governor initially proposed, could continue to provide services to those in need until a budget deal can be reached.
Schemel Comments on House Passage of Public Pension Reform Legislation - 6/30/2015
The Pennsylvania House voted Tuesday in favor of public pension reform for the Commonwealth. Senate Bill 1 addresses the rapidly rising costs of the current pension system for public school and state employees without removing any benefits already earned by current employees or affecting the pension benefits of current retirees. The legislation would establish a hybrid defined contribution/cash balance plan for all future state and school employees. The pension reform bill now goes to the governor’s desk for his signature. Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) offered comments following passage of the legislation.
Rep. Schemel Comments Following Unanimous Vote to Reject Governor's Tax Increase Proposals - 6/2/2015
The House voted unanimously on Monday to reject Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget proposal and the associated tax increases requested to support his record spending plan. The plan was put forth as an amendment to ensure the governor’s ideas received fair and timely consideration on the floor of the House. The tax plans put forth by the new governor proved so unpopular that every member of the House present voted against it. Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) offered these comments following the vote.
