HARRISBURG –Senator Mike Regan (R-31, Cumberland and York Counties) today was reappointed by Senate President Pro Tempore Kim Ward (R-39) to serve as Chairman of the Senate Law and Justice Committee for the 2023-2024 legislative session.
The Senate Law and Justice Committee, which Regan has served as chairman of for the last two years, oversees issues pertaining to the Pennsylvania State Police, other law enforcement matters, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, as well as matters involving the Office of Medical Marijuana.
“I am honored to have been reappointed chair of the Senate Law and Justice Committee and am grateful that Senator Ward has confidence in my ability to lead this important committee,” Regan said. “As a former U.S. Marshal, one of my top legislative priorities is ensuring our law enforcement officers are protected and have the resources they need to fully do their jobs. I have also been a champion of medical marijuana since my time in the House of Representatives, and it is important that we keep working to improve our medical program for patients and operators. The same goes for our state-run liquor system, which should be focused on consumer access to in-demand products rather than price hikes for the purpose of increasing the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board’s revenue coffers.”
Regan additionally was reappointed as vice chairman of the Local Government Committee and as a sitting member on the following committees: Community, Economic & Recreational Development; Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure; Judiciary; and Rules and Executive Nominations.
