Alloway Appointed to Six Senate Panels

HARRISBURG – Senator Richard Alloway II (R-33) was recently appointed to serve on six Senate committees that are expected to shape a great deal of the General Assembly’s agenda during 2017-18 Legislative Session.

Alloway will continue to serve as Vice Chairman of the Senate Law and Justice Committee, which is responsible for reviewing legislation, regulations and policies pertaining to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board and the Pennsylvania State Police, including laws pertaining to liquor sales.

Alloway will also serve as a member of the Senate Community, Economic and Recreational Development Committee; Game and Fisheries Committee; Judiciary Committee; Rules and Executive Nominations Committee; and State Government Committee.

“These committees play a critical role in advancing a number of issues that are important not only for local communities, but for the entire state,” Alloway said. “Liquor reform, job creation and criminal justice reform are expected to be some of the most difficult and contentious issues the Senate will tackle over the next two years. I look forward to making sure our area’s voice is heard in these debates.”

In addition to his committee assignments, Alloway was re-elected by members of the Senate Republican Caucus in November to serve as Majority Caucus Secretary. He served in the same capacity over the past two years, spearheading the process of reviewing hundreds of nominations submitted by the Wolf Administration.
