Greiner Is Looking to Be a Leader on Tax Reform This Session
HARRISBURG – Rep. Keith J. Greiner (R-Upper Leacock) today released his roster of committee assignments for the 2013-14 session, which includes the House committee responsible for tax policy and reform.

“My assignment to the House Finance Committee is a great opportunity for me to help spur economic growth through tax reform,” said Greiner. “I am looking forward to using my expertise as a Certified Public Accountant to examine what we can do to increase job opportunities in the Commonwealth, and tax law is a great starting point. The committee already met this week and advanced three great tax proposals for the Commonwealth, including a bill to exempt family-owned business assets being passed down within the family from the death tax.”

Greiner noted that all state and local tax legislation goes through the Finance Committee.

Along with serving on the Finance Committee, Greiner was also appointed to the House Aging and Older Adult Services, Children and Youth, and Urban Affairs committees. Greiner will serve as the House Urban Affairs Committee secretary.

The Aging and Older Adult Services Committee handles legislation regarding long-term care, Area Agencies on Aging and other issues impacting Pennsylvania’s senior citizens.

The Children and Youth Committee considers proposals pertaining to foster care, certain family law issues, child day care programs, and will likely have a major role in implementing many of the recommendations from the Report of the Task Force on Child Protection released last November.

Affordable housing, code enforcement, land use planning and zoning, and infrastructure financing are issues covered in the Urban Affairs Committee.
