Nelson Named to Newly Formed House Government Oversight Committee
2/22/2019
HARRISBURG – Rep. Eric Nelson (R-Hempfield) on Thursday was appointed by Majority Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) to serve on the newly created House Government Oversight Committee for the 2019-20 Legislative Session.

The nine-member committee will have subpoena power to investigate matters referred by the speaker, majority leader or minority leader. The House Government Oversight Committee stems from newly enacted House Rules. The aim of the committee is to provide better legislative oversight on how tax dollars are spent and how state agencies operate. The committee mirrors the House Committee on Oversight and Reform in the U.S. Congress.

“I am honored to be selected as one of five Republicans to this committee,” Nelson said. “I have remained committed to stopping wasteful government spending. Tax dollars should reach the district and not be re-directed, misappropriated or misused. My service on this committee will help further these efforts.”

Nelson also serves on the Aging and Older Services, Consumer Affairs, Human Services, Insurance, and Labor and Industry committees. In addition, he is majority chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Gas and Oil Caucus and a Deputy Chair on the Policy Committee

The 57th Legislative District includes the following Westmoreland County communities: the city of Greensburg; the townships of Hempfield (part) and Salem; and the boroughs of Delmont, Hunker, New Stanton, South Greensburg, Southwest Greensburg and Youngwood.
