HARRISBURG – On Tuesday, Jan. 6, Rep. Rosemary M. Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) took the oath of office and was sworn in to serve her third term as state representative for the 189th Legislative District.

“Today marks the beginning of a new legislative session, and I am extremely honored and humbled to be representing the people of Monroe and Pike counties again,” Brown said.

Brown’s legislative priorities in the 2015-16 session include working toward creating a more fair basic education funding formula, continuing to pass a school property tax relief measure, maintaining an efficient and effective state government, as well as a few specific legislative efforts.

Additionally, Brown announced she will serve a second term as a deputy policy chair for the House Majority Policy Committee.

“I am looking forward to having the opportunity to again serve as a deputy policy chair,” Brown said. “As a member of this committee, I have the opportunity to attend hearings and meetings across the state, and focus on some of the most important policy issues facing the Commonwealth.”

During the previous legislative session, Brown focused heavily on promoting the importance of financial literacy, as a member of the Policy Committee. She hopes to continue her work on that issue, as she believes it is important to educate young people on how to make smart decisions to maintain financial stability.
