HARRISBURG, Jan. 28 – State Rep. Brandon Markosek, D-Allegheny, today announced he was appointed to serve on three House committees for the 2019-20 legislative session: Professional Licensure, Commerce and Gaming Oversight.

“As a freshman lawmaker, I’m looking forward to my first committee appointments from House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody,” Markosek said. “Each committee entails different responsibilities, but they all have the same goal of getting the best version of a respective bill to the full House.
