HARRISBURG – Rep. Ryan Warner (R-Fayette/Westmoreland) has been appointed to the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee by Speaker of the House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny).
“It is an honor to be selected by the speaker to join this committee,” Warner said. “As a strong supporter of domestic energy, I am eager to promote Pennsylvania’s abundant natural resources. Domestic energy creates jobs at home, reduces our dependence on foreign oil and strengthens our national security.”

The committee addresses legislation involving clean air, land and water; radioactive and other waste disposal; recycling; and more.
