Sen. Joe Pittman (R-41) will speak during a luncheon of the Alle Kiski Strong Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, May 18.
The luncheon is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kittanning Country Club, 218 Bell Top Drive, Kittanning, PA 16201.
Sen. Pittman – who joined the Pennsylvania Senate following a special election victory on May 21, 2019, to fill the remaining term of Sen. Don White, and was reelected to a 4-year term in 2020 – chairs the Senate Urban Affairs and Housing Committee and he’s the vice-chairman of the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee. He is also a member of four other Senate committees: Appropriations, Banking and Insurance, Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure, and Judiciary.
Additionally, Pittman serves as the Senate Republican Caucus representative on the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) Board of Directors.
The senator has been a leader in the effort to promote economic development, job creation initiatives and working to strengthen the local economy of the 41st Senatorial District, including all of Armstrong and Indiana counties, and parts of Butler and Westmoreland counties. He has staunchly opposed the carbon tax that will be created by the governor’s plan to have Pennsylvania join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). The carbon tax would severely impact the region’s coal and electric generation sectors and potentially cause the loss of thousands of good-paying, family-sustaining jobs.
