Webster sworn in to begin second term as state representative

HARRISBURG, Jan. 5 – State Rep. Joe Webster, D-Montgomery, took the oath of office at the state Capitol today to begin his second term representing the 150th Legislative District.

The noon swearing-in ceremony marked the beginning of the 2021-22 session of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, to which Webster was first elected in 2018.

Among the priorities Webster said he will focus on in the new term are addressing the economic issues impacting Pennsylvania and proposing legislation that would improve the legislative process. His committee assignments for the 2021-22 session will be announced later this month.

"The work to be in done in Harrisburg isn’t about the lawyers writing up new language – these laws are about our daily lives, the financial challenges we face and the future of our families," Webster said. "Pennsylvania needs legislation presented on the House floor that guarantees access to voting, improves state agencies, funds public schools, grants healthcare protections and updates our infrastructure. Communities needed support and action before the pandemic, and they need it even more to recover after COVID-19. I hope my colleagues will let us vote and take action."

Webster said his office can help with a variety of state-related services, including home heating, children’s health insurance, prescription drug and property tax/rent rebate assistance. His office phone number is 484-200-8263, and the email address is RepWebster@pahouse.net.
