Rep. Williams lands three influential committee assignments

HARRISBURG, Jan. 28 – Freshman state Rep. Dan Williams announced today his assignment to three influential House committees.

Williams’ first turn in Harrisburg will see him serving on the Children & Youth, the Urban Affairs, and the Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness committees.

“Many citizens are not aware that bills which become laws have origins in committee work,” Williams said. “It’s why serving on committees that can directly impact citizens within my district is an honor.”

The Children & Youth Committee focuses on Pennsylvania’s youngest residents, reviewing bills that impact the Office of Child Development and Learning, as well as the Office of Children, Youth and Families under the Department of Human Services.

The Urban Affairs Committee centers its focus on housing and public safety issues in cities and counties of the first, second and third class.

And the Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness Committee oversees the Department of Military Affairs and the Pa. Emergency Management Agency, as well as the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services under the Department of Health. Its focus is on issues affecting veterans and the military, plus disaster preparedness and emergency response.

Williams’ initial swearing-in occurred Jan. 1, and he represents the 74th Legislative District in Chester County.
