Rep. Snyder appointed to four key committees in state House

(Jan 28, 2019)

HARRISBURG , Jan. 28 – State Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, has been named to four key committees in the state House of Representatives for the 2019-20 legislative session. “These committee appointments allow me to advocate on a variety of issues that are vital to Greene, Fayette and Washington counties,” said Snyder, who was reappointed to the Consumer Affairs, Environmental Resources and Energy, Labor and Industry, and Agriculture and Rural Affairs committees. I’m eager to begin working with my colleagues in the House to weigh in on policies that have a direct impact on the quality of life for residents of my district.” Snyder said her continued work on the Consumer Affairs Committee falls in line with her efforts to empower consumers and provides an opportunity to push for internet updates in underserved, rural areas of the state. “Highly profitable corporations should not be jeopardizing progress and economic opportunities by stymieing growth.” Snyder said. “Equal access to the internet, regardless of location or income, must be provided if rural Pennsylvania is to remain competitive, offer every student the best education, access modern day healthcare options, sustain our farmlands, and create the jobs of tomorrow.” Snyder said her appointment to the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee allows her to have an impact on the region’s natural gas and coal resources.

Snyder named chairperson of Southwest Delegation

(Jan 15, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Jan. 15 – Continuing her ascension into key positions, state Rep. Pam Snyder was today unanimously elected chairperson of the Southwest Delegation of the House Democratic Caucus. Today’s announcement comes on the heels of Snyder being named a House Democratic deputy whip, whose duties revolve around ensuring members are present for votes and in tallying support prior to a vote. As she tackles her fourth term, Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, will also now be tasked with devising strategy and promoting ideas on a regional basis – a platform and challenge she said she embraces with great gusto. “Being elected by my surrounding peers to lead the charge on issues of collective importance is a responsibility I do not take lightly,” Snyder said. “I intend to help set and guide our agenda, with a keen focus on what benefits all of us and the people we represent.” First and foremost for Snyder is an expanded push to bring reliable broadband internet into rural areas, a signature effort she’s led in recent years with palpable successes, including a role as co-founder of the legislature’s Broadband Caucus and the governor’s formation of a state Office of Broadband Initiatives. “As I assume leadership of the Southwest Delegation, I’ll be keeping expanded broadband front and center in our discussions, along with other important issues,” Snyder said. “Job creation and Read more
