Legislators to Hear from Local Panel on Job Creation, Government Overregulation
WHAT: State legislators from across Pennsylvania will participate in a legislative hearing to accept testimony from local job creators that have been impeded by Pennsylvania’s state agencies, complex regulations and cumbersome processes. Led by Chair of the House Majority Policy Committee Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) and Rep. Marcia Hahn (R-Bushkill Township), the hearing will also include testimony from members of the local economic development community who are helping small businesses get up and running, and are working to attract new jobs to the region.

The hearing is part of the Policy Committee’s latest initiative to grow and strengthen Pennsylvania’s middle class. Over the course of several hearings and roundtable discussions this fall, the committee will hear from Pennsylvania residents, community leaders and businesses on how state government can best assist them, and when to get out of their way, as they undertake efforts to create jobs and improve, prosper and strengthen our communities.

WHO: Benninghoff, Hahn and legislators from across the state.

Testifiers will include: Sue Jarvis, CPA; Lorraine Faccenda, LaFarage Cement; Bonnie Butz, Vaping Oasis; Don Cunningham, Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp.; James Fischer, Small Business Development Center of Lehigh University College of Business & Economics; and Chad Paul, Ben Franklin Technology Partners.

WHEN: Wednesday, Sept. 20, from 1-3 p.m.

WHERE: Hanover Township Municipal Building, 3630 Jacksonville Road, Bethlehem, PA
