HARRISBURG – Rep. Zach Mako (R-Lehigh/Northampton) recently was appointed one of 10 deputy policy chairmen for the 2019-20 legislative session.

“It is an honor to have been selected for this role in only my second term,” Mako said. “Through my work on the Policy Committee, I will continue to fight for property tax reform, job creation and infrastructure improvements. I believe my military experience will offer a different perspective in meetings.”

The House Majority Policy Committee conducts hearings and roundtable discussions about important statewide and regional issues that matter most to Pennsylvania citizens; gathers testimony and information from key stakeholders; and works within the House Republican Caucus to develop policies to address those issues. The Policy Committee also works in tandem with the speaker and majority leader to examine and refine critical pieces of legislation in advance of floor consideration.

“Rep. Mako is no stranger to hard work and dedication to get the job done,” said Donna Oberlander, chair of the Majority Policy Committee. “Zach’s combat military experience in Afghanistan, combined with his legislative efforts thus far, have distinguished him among his colleagues, and I look forward to hearing his perspectives as we develop good public policies for our Commonwealth.”
