Senator Mensch’s Harrisburg Highlights

Dear Friend,

Below are some important Harrisburg updates that may be helpful to you.

  • Recently, the Senate adopted my resolution designating the week of January 1 through January 7, 2019 as “First Responder Appreciation Week” in Pennsylvania. Senate Resolution 11 recognizes that these individuals make a tremendous difference in our communities every day through their selfless acts of service and their sacrifices. We owe a huge debt of gratitude and our eternal thanks to each and every one of them, and very especially to their families.
  • I recently authored a letter to the editor highlighted the state’s new performance based budgeting process.You can read a copy of the letter here.
  • A bill to greatly expand the list of criminal convictions that trigger pension forfeiture for state public officials and employees won unanimous approval Tuesday from the Senate Finance Committee.The panel’s action regarding Senate Bill 113 marks a new push to enact legislation that came close to passage last session, but fell short of getting a House floor vote.

If you ever have any questions, please contact my office directly at 215-541-2388.

Senator Bob Mensch
