Scavello Appointed to Senate Leadership Position

Harrisburg — Senator Mario Scavello (R-40) has been appointed by Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-34) to the Pennsylvania Senate leadership position of Senate Majority Policy Chairman for the 2021-22 legislative session.

The committee works with Republican senators to develop legislation important to their districts and the commonwealth as a whole. The panel holds hearings to inform members and bring together stakeholders on key issues across Pennsylvania.

“I am honored to begin serving in this position and playing a key role in exploring issues important to the 40th Senatorial District and all Pennsylvanians,” Scavello said. “We are facing many challenges in the new year, and I look forward to bringing people together to examine ideas and work on solutions.” 

Senator Scavello was elected to the Senate in 2014 and has been a strong voice for his district and is looking forward to using his new leadership position to be an even stronger voice for those in his community and across Pennsylvania.  Scavello’s prior Chairmanship positions include the Senate Game and Fisheries Committee and the Senate Community, Economic and Recreational Development Committee, and he is a long-standing member of the Senate Appropriations Committee. He most recently chaired the Senate Banking and Insurance Committee in the 2019-20 legislative session.
