HARRISBURG – State Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23) has been appointed to serve as Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Infrastructure and Government Operations, according to a recent announcement by Sen. Patrick Browne (R-16), Chairman of the Appropriations Committee.
Senator Yaw is one of five Republicans and four Democrats who will be tasked with reviewing funding levels for a variety of state agencies including, Executive Offices, Lt. Governor’s Office, Department of Environmental Protection, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Department of Transportation and Department of State, to name a few.
“I am grateful to be a part of this important subcommittee,” Sen.
