Harrisburg Highlights

Senator Mensch’s Harrisburg Highlights

November 13, 2020

Dear Friends,

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

While there was no legislation moving back and forth this week in Harrisburg, both Chambers were open for individual caucus leadership elections.  These elections are typically held every two years following the general election, and before the start of a new legislative session.  In a historic election, Senator Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland) became the first woman ever to be elected as a Caucus Leader for either party in Harrisburg.  I congratulate Senator Ward on her groundbreaking election, and look forward to working with her in her new position and part of the Senate Republican Leadership Team!
