Senator Mensch Announces 2021-2022 Committee Assignments

HARRISBURG – State Senator Bob Mensch (R-24) has been appointed to serve on several key committees for the 2021-2022 legislative session.

“There is a significant amount of work that each committee puts in to ensure that important legislation is produced,” Mensch said. “I am excited to work with my colleagues to examine, amend, and improve the bills that we receive, and continue to work together to bring the Commonwealth back to what it was before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. This legislative session will be a challenging one, but likely one of the most important that we’ve had.”

Senator Mensch will serve as Vice Chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee. In addition, the Senator was again appointed to the vital Senate Appropriations Committee.

In addition, the Senator is a member of four other committees: Communications and Technology; Community, Economic, and Recreational Development; and Labor and Industry.

Mensch also Chairs the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee (LBFC) which is a bipartisan, bicameral legislative service agency consisting of 12 members of the General Assembly. The LBFC conducts studies and provides recommendations aimed at eliminating unnecessary expenditures while ensuring that state funds are being expended in accordance with legislative intent and law. Mensch also co-chairs the Senate Economy, Business and Jobs Caucus, the Life Science Caucus, and the Community College Caucus.

Senator Mensch was elected by his Republican colleagues to serve as Majority Caucus Chairman for the 2021-2022 legislative session.  As chairman he will preside over Republican caucus meetings to discuss bills and amendments and to develop caucus strategy.
