HARRISBURG – The leadership team of the Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus: Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster), Whip Tim O’Neal (R-Washington), Appropriations Chairman Seth Grove (R-York), Caucus Chairman George Dunbar (R-Westmoreland), Caucus Secretary Martina White (R-Philadelphia), Caucus Administrator Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) and Policy Committee Chairman Josh Kail (R-Washington/Beaver) made the following statement on the announcement of House recess and the canceling of previously announced special session days for the remainder of the week:
“The House Republican Caucus was at the Capitol all day today, ready to work and organize both special session and regular House session. We had rules, we had the votes, and we were ready to proceed with the people’s business.
“It is disappointing that the most basic organizational issues continue to obstruct the work of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
“It is our hope that we can proceed the way we should have from the beginning: in regular session, with rules that receive engagement from both caucuses, and with the well-being of the people of Pennsylvania—and not individual interests—as our first priority.”
