The House Democratic Policy Committee holds public hearings and meetings across the state and serves as the catalyst to enacting major policy initiatives put forth by members of the House Democratic Caucus. State Rep. Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster, was chosen by the caucus to lead this committee. The committee typically holds hearings outside of Harrisburg to investigate local impact of certain issues and collect valuable expert input.
To judge the local impact state issues have in certain regions and collect valuable public input, the Policy Committee travels throughout the state to hold public hearings. Check back here regularly for the Committee's hearing schedule and collected testimony. Follow Chairman Sturla on Twitter to be the first to know when hearings are announced.
