HARRISBURG – As he continues his strong advocacy for issues in the 15th District and statewide, Rep. Joshua D. Kail (R-Beaver/Washington) announced today that he is taking on a leadership role within the House Republican Caucus in Harrisburg after being elected by his peers Tuesday to serve as chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee.

“I am very humbled to have the support of my colleagues to take on this critical role,” Kail said. “For years, we have been visiting communities across Pennsylvania to receive vital information from real people on the short- and long-term issues they face such as crippling inflation and the rise in crime. It takes a team effort to help guide Pennsylvania in the right direction, and I look forward to the work ahead to ensure the people’s voices are heard in Harrisburg.”

As Republican Policy Committee chairman, Kail will conduct hearings about important issues, gather testimony and information from key stakeholders and work with colleagues in the House Republican Caucus to identify key issues and develop policies to address them. Several key issues addressed through the work of the Policy Committee in the past few years have involved rural broadband accessibility, emergency medical services and job creation among others.

Leadership elections were held at the state Capitol and included all returning House Republican lawmakers, as well as 23 new members.

Alongside Kail, the new House leadership team will consist of House Republican Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster), Whip Tim O’Neal (R-Washington), Appropriations Chairman Seth Grove (R-York), Caucus Administrator Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland), Caucus Chairman George Dunbar (R-Westmoreland) and Caucus Secretary Martina White (R-Philadelphia).

The new leadership team will begin its work in January when the House kicks off the 2023-24 session.
