HARRISBURG
– Embarking in a new role in the state House while keeping the issues of the 63rd District at the top of her to-do list this session, Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest) took the oath of office today for her fourth term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. She was joined at the Capitol ceremony by her family and loved ones.

“The excitement of swearing-in day is contagious, as today marks the start of the new legislative session with a number of new faces and optimism for the new session before us,” Oberlander said. “Being the voice of the citizens of the 63rd District is a responsibility I take very seriously, and I will continue to be a strong advocate for fiscal conservatism, especially in terms of growing our economy, reducing red tape and unnecessary regulation and making our region a more attractive place to do business.”

In November, Oberlander was selected by her peers to serve as caucus secretary, where she is responsible for recording all official action of the House and helping to mentor the first-term representatives. Being a part of the House Republican leadership team will allow her to have a seat at the table for negotiations on the state’s and region’s highest priorities.

Rep. Oberlander’s video comments on today’s swearing-in ceremony and the new session:


“As chairman of the House Diabetes and Gas and Oil caucuses, the health care and natural gas industries are significant to me and to our local residents because each issue has a profound impact on people’s everyday lives,” Oberlander continued. “Since both will continue to be at the forefront of policy discussions this term, it is imperative that we develop responsible legislation that will benefit our local residents. That’s no small task, but is one in which I’m eager to tackle.”

Before being elected to House leadership, Oberlander served on a number of high-profile committees in the House, including Environmental Resources and Energy, Appropriations, Local Government and Children and Youth.
