Flynn lands key committee posts for second term in state House

HARRISBURG, Jan. 20 – State Rep. Marty Flynn, D-Lackawanna, today announced that he has been appointed to five House of Representatives committees for the 2015-16 legislative session.

"The committee process is an important part of our democracy," Flynn said. "I am looking forward to working with my colleagues on these committees to find solutions that will help both my district and the entire state."

Flynn was named to the Consumer Affairs, Game and Fisheries, Gaming Oversight, and Insurance committees. He will also return to the Commerce Committee, which he served on last session.

"I learned much during my first session in the House, which I think will better enable me to advocate for the people of my district," Flynn said. "I am eager to get to work, and it is my hope that we will be able to put Pennsylvania on a path of prosperity for all."
