State Rep. Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster, has been chosen by the caucus to lead this committee since 2009.  

The Policy Committee typically holds hearings outside of Harrisburg to investigate the local impact of certain issues and collect valuable expert input. Check back here regularly for the Committee's hearing schedule and collected testimony.
