White to Serve on Urban Affairs, Judiciary Committees
HARRISBURG-- Rep. Martina White (R-Philadelphia) has been reassigned to the Urban Affairs Committee for the 2017-18 session.

She is the only Philadelphia Republican to serve on the committee that reviews legislation affecting the state’s largest cities, including housing, urban redevelopment, economic development, land use planning and zoning, growth management, infrastructure financing, and city services such as police, fire, sewage and water.

“This is quite an honor as the committee will investigate legislation to target the challenges unique to Philadelphia,” White said. “That includes issues like blight and redevelopment, which is critical for the healthy growth of our city and some of our neighborhoods that are struggling economically.”

White will also serve on the Health, Consumer Affairs and Judiciary committees.

The House Judiciary Committee focuses on issues and legislation relating to the Judicial Code, the Crimes Code and the Domestic Relations Code. Some of the topics overseen by the committee include identity theft, firearms laws, domestic violence, child abuse laws, state prisons and criminal law.

“While on the Judiciary Committee, I will be able to effect the laws that are crafted to protect our citizens, including our police officers,” White said. “On the Health Committee, I will be able to share the input I’ve received from our local hospitals and medical research facilities so the legislation we craft will make sure Pennsylvanians receive the best care and cutting-edge technologies.”
