HARRISBURG – Rep. John Hershey (R-Mifflin/Juniata/Franklin) took the oath of office Tuesday to begin his second legislative term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Hershey’s goals for the term include supporting legislation that helps the agriculture community, rural families and small business owners. He also plans to continue opposing any new gun control efforts and standing up for the unborn. Newly appointed to the Appropriations Committee, Hershey also wants to ensure state spending remains at its current levels or decreases, as taxpayers across the state are facing hardships.
“The 2021-22 Legislative Session is going to be an important one because of the economic damage wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic and Gov. Tom Wolf’s orders that shuttered businesses when they could least afford it. We are focused on Pennsylvania’s recovery and making sure we steward taxpayer dollars responsibly,” Hershey said.
