House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) issued the following statement after the retirement announcement by Speaker Mike Turzai:
“As I said in my comments on the floor today, every Pennsylvanian benefitted because Mike Turzai chose to commit so much of his life to serving in our chamber. The impact on the 28th district, the House and the entire Commonwealth will be felt for generations to come. Speaker Turzai set an example of professionalism, success and grace that should inspire every member of the General Assembly, regardless of party affiliation.
“As the Speaker indicated, I will take on the role of acting speaker upon his departure. However, our caucus will soon schedule leadership elections and allow our members to choose our next nominee for Speaker of the House.”
