Cutler Sworn In for Third Term

Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) took the oath of office today to begin his third term serving the 100th District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. 

“This will be my first term serving in the majority, and I am hopeful we can advance a lot of the issues the people of this Commonwealth have been calling for, such as reining in spending and reducing welfare fraud,” said Cutler.  “Two of my own bills that I am going to push for will help to eliminate fraud in the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and the Weatherization Assistance Program, both of which have been identified as rampant with fraud.  Pennsylvania cannot keep allowing taxpayer dollars to be wasted on individuals who are not genuinely eligible for assistance.” 

Cutler, who was first sworn in during 2007, took the oath today with 200 other House members, including 29 new members.  Fellow Solanco graduate Ryan Aument (R-West Hempfield) was among the new members taking the oath for the first time.  Rep. Keith Gillespie (R-Hellam) is also a graduate of Solanco. 

Cutler noted that despite Republican control of the House, Senate and administration, there will be many difficult decisions to be made next year, especially when it comes to drafting a balanced budget.  

“It would be naive for us to assume that simply by having Republicans in control of state government, our problems will disappear,” said Cutler.  “We have many challenges ahead, such as balancing the budget, funding transportation infrastructure and getting Pennsylvanians back to work; however, I do believe we are ready to meet these challenges and will be a stronger Commonwealth in the end.”
