Argall to Serve on Key Committees in Senate
Argall, who will chair the Senate Majority Policy Committee, will also serve as a member of the Senate Finance Committee in order to pursue the elimination of the school property tax.
“There is no issue greater than school property tax elimination in Berks and Schuylkill counties,” Argall said. “We will also vote on public pension reform this session.”
Argall will serve as Vice Chairman of the Senate Urban Affairs and Housing Committee. Prior to joining Senate leadership, Argall chaired the committee and shepherded landmark anti-blight bills through the Senate during the 2013-14 session.
“I look forward to working with Chairman McGarrigle to provide more tools and resources for our communities so we can continue to combat blight.”
Argall will also remain a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, which deals with the state budget.
He will also serve as a member of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee and the Community, Economic and Recreational Development Committee for the 2017-18 legislative session.
