HARRISBURG – Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Franklin) today placed his hand on the Bible and once again pledged to serve the people of the 89th Legislative District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives when he took the oath of office.
“It continues to be an honor to serve my friends and neighbors in this capacity,” said Kauffman. “Franklin County is my home and where I choose to raise my family, which is why I care so deeply about the people, organizations and businesses that have also put down roots there. We have a lot of work ahead of us to address the pandemic, election reform, the state budget and many more issues, and I look forward to getting started as we begin the 2021-22 Legislative Session.”
Following the swearing-in ceremony, Speaker of the House Bryan Cutler announced his appointment of Kauffman to serve as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee for a second term.
The House Judiciary Committee deals with issues pertaining to criminal justice reform, firearms, family law, law enforcement, sex offenses, judicial reforms, animal cruelty, crime victims, juvenile justice and more.
“We accomplished a great deal through the Judiciary Committee last session, and I plan on continuing to build on that track record during the 2021-22 session,” said Kauffman. “I look forward to examining the many bills that will be introduced and sent to the committee for review in the coming weeks.”
