Low-interest loans of up to $200,000 are available to homeowners and businesses to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate. I encourage anyone who thinks they may be eligible to visit the SBA website here.

Proudly Representing the People of the 83rd in Harrisburg
I am proud to inform you that I have been appointed by Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest) to serve, along with nine of my House Republican colleagues, as a deputy Policy Committee chairman on the House Majority Policy Committee for the 2019-20 legislative session.

The House Majority Policy Committee conducts hearings and roundtable discussions about important statewide and regional issues that matter most to Pennsylvania citizens; gathers testimony and information from key stakeholders; and works within the House Republican Caucus to develop policies to address those issues. The Policy Committee also works in tandem with the speaker and majority leader to examine and refine critical pieces of legislation in advance of floor consideration.

I am incredibly thankful to be given this opportunity to lend a business owner’s perspective to the committee as we craft legislation that affects our entrepreneurs and job creators.
