Twardzik Appointed to House Health Committee

Rep. Tim Twardzik (R-Schuylkill) has announced his appointment to the House Health Committee for the 2021-22 Legislative Session by Speaker Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster).
“As we have seen over the past year, the House Health Committee plays an integral role in impacting legislative proposals regarding health care across the Commonwealth,” said Twardzik. “Under Chairman Kathy Rapp’s (R-Warren/Crawford/Forest) leadership, the committee has tackled pressing issues such as the opioid epidemic and how to assist and help Pennsylvanians recover from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to bringing my private sector background to this committee to support critical legislation that will benefit all Pennsylvanians.”

The House Health Committee focuses on issues such as abortion, disease management, stem cell research, health savings accounts, hospital-acquired infections, Medical Assistance, patient safety, pharmaceutical issues, telemedicine, vital records, such as birth and death certificates and much more.
