HARRISBURG, Feb. 9 – In recognition of his success fostering economic development projects in the 74th district, State Rep. Dan Williams, D-Chester, has been named to the House Professional Licensure Committee.

“Since I was elected to the house in 2018, I have made economic development a priority as it is the primary way to uplift our communities,” Williams said. “As a member of the powerful House Professional Licensure Committee, I will be able to advocate for bills that will foster job development and business growth in our district and throughout Pennsylvania. As a bridge builder, I will work across the aisle to ensure that bills that would help our businesses and workers thrive will come up for a vote on the House floor.”
