HARRISBURG – The year of 2021 was a busy one for lawmakers in the PA House. Lancaster County Rep. Bryan Cutler, the Speaker of the House, looked back over the year and talked about some of the legislative highlights. The lawmaker says that they passed bills – some approved and some vetoed – to allow for school curriculum transparency, several mental health measures, legislation aimed at improving PA’s competitiveness across the nation, and began the reapportionment process. He added they put a record amount of money into the state’s savings account along with record investments in education and workforce development for the state. They also made policy changes in terms of assistance to health care providers and approved a constitutional amendment that gave power back to the people of PA limiting the governor’s powers. Cutler said House lawmakers will begin looking at the state budget process at the start of 2022.
