Neuman Appointed to Five House Committees

See what the legislator will be up to this term in office.

State Rep. Brandon Neuman, D-North Strabane, has been appointed to serve on the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Consumer Affairs, Judiciary, Labor and Industry and Rules committees for the 2013-14 legislative session.

He is the only second-term legislator to be appointed to the Rules Committee as far back as anyone can remember. All legislation considered by the House goes through the influential committee which is usually composed of House leaders and senior legislators.

“I look forward to working on all five important House committees that will review legislation effecting businesses, farming, consumers and the law enforcement protection of Washington County residents,” Neuman said.  “This is an important time for our state and I want to work in a bipartisan fashion for the best interests of our commonwealth.”

Neuman will serve as Democratic secretary of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee. The committee reviews legislation related to food production and food safety and oversees the Agriculture Department and the Milk Marketing Board, among others.

The Consumer Affairs Committee reviews legislation related to protection of consumers and has jurisdiction over the Public Utility Commission.

The Labor and Industry Committee has oversight of the Department of Labor and Industry, State Civil Service Commission, Labor Relations Board and Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board, among others.

He wants to be bipartisan, but he wants to go after Tom Corbett. Make up your mind, Brandon- are you a stateman or a party hack?

I don't think his will to "go after" Corbett is politically motivated at all. Corbett was the acting Attorney General during arguably the cover-up in sports history. I just finished reading "Silent No More" by Aaron Fisher (A.K.A 'victim one'). There is no doubt in my mind that Corbett knew about it and chose to look the other way because he didn't want to ruffle feathers prior to his race for governor. Mr. Corbett is one of the most transparently politically-motivated people I've seen; and I should add that I am a registered Republican. While I appreciate his lawsuit against the NCAA, I see it as nothing more than an attempt to recapture lost votes in Centre County and central PA.

*Sorry- meant to type "arguably the most infamous cover-up in sports history".

Tough to be "bipartisan" when you are on committees that reveal you to be the puppet of the ambulance chasing attorneys and labor unions. Sounds like someone is scared of a true Republican challenger in 2014... and they should be.

Equally tough to prosecute a pedophile when it's revealed that you have accepted $650,000 in donations from The Second Mile. All I am saying is let's not pretend that the investigation proposed by Mr. Neuman is unwarranted. Mr. Corbett brough this on himself.
