Cox to Serve on Four State House Committees
HARRISBURG – State Representative Jim Cox (R-Berks) today was assigned to serve on four standing House committees during the 2013-14 legislative session. Cox was assigned to the Commerce, Professional Licensure, Game & Fisheries, and Labor & Industry committees.

“These committees play a significant role in reviewing legislation that greatly impacts our economy,” Cox said. “From determining company behaviors to deciding who is licensed to work in certain sectors and how employers and employees will get along, the legislation I will be reviewing will help chart our economic future. Each of these committees deals with a segment of our Commonwealth that greatly contributes to our economy. I’m excited about the important work ahead.”

The state House Commerce Committee vets legislation regulating the behavior of Pennsylvania companies.

The House Professional Licensure Committee reviews legislation that establishes rules governing the licenses required to engage in certain professions in the Commonwealth.

The House Game & Fisheries Committee deals with legislation that affects hunters, fishers and outdoor enthusiasts.

The House Labor & Industry Committee handles legislation dealing with employee-employer relations and the Commonwealth’s unemployment compensation system.

“While I am pleased to serve on these committees, they will not detract from my main focus, which is replacing school district property taxes,” Cox said. “I plan to reintroduce the Property Tax Independence Act and work with the grassroots taxpayer groups that are pushing for it to be enacted into law.”
