Cutler Will Continue to Serve on House Health and Judiciary Committees
1/15/2013
HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania House of Representatives this week reorganized its standing committees for the 2013-14 session, and Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) will continue his service on the House Health and Judiciary committees, as well as being appointed to the House Professional Licensure and Labor and Industry committees.

“I am very pleased with these committee appointments, and I believe they will help me to meet the priorities of those I serve,” said Cutler. “The Health and Judiciary committees are natural fits with my background in health care and law. I am looking forward to lending my abilities and learning more about Pennsylvania’s professional licensing issues and working to increase Pennsylvania’s workforce.”

Since first coming to office in 2007, Cutler has served on the House Health Committee, which oversees legislation relating to immunizations, licensing of health care facilities, pharmaceutical issues and specialized health programs. As a former X-ray technologist and manager of support services for Lancaster General Hospital, Cutler has first-hand experience in the health care industry.

“I know the health care industry from the inside,” said Cutler. “I have seen what works and what government policies are straining our already ailing health care system. I am looking forward to continuing my service on the Health Committee because I believe we have made progress, and we are moving Pennsylvania public policy in the right direction.”

While running for office in 2006 and working full time, Cutler earned his law degree from Widener Law School. His background in law has helped him to have a base of knowledge for his service on the House Judiciary Committee, to which he was first appointed in 2011. The Judiciary Committee examines legislation on subjects from lawsuit abuse reform to family law and includes topics covered in Pennsylvania’s Crimes Code.

New to the Professional Licensure Committee, the assignment will allow Cutler to affect policies relating to Pennsylvania’s 29 licensing boards, which encompass everything from veterinarians and dentists to auctioneers and funeral directors.

Cutler also will serve for the first time on the House Labor and Industry Committee, which reviews legislation pertaining to unemployment compensation, workers’ compensation, prevailing wage and workplace safety.
