Ellis Continues to Serve on House Appropriations Committee
HARRISBURG – Rep. Brian Ellis (R-Butler) this week received his House committee assignments for his fifth term representing the 11th Legislative District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

For the 2013-14 legislative session, Ellis will continue to serve on the House Appropriations Committee, where he was recently appointed to serve as the committee’s chairman of the Criminal Justice Subcommittee.

The House Appropriations Committee is primarily tasked with drafting an annual balanced budget proposal. This committee also reviews all legislation to analyze the fiscal impact that any legislative proposal may have on Commonwealth funds.

“I am pleased to continue working as a member of the Appropriations Committee as I feel it is one of the most important and busiest committees,” said Ellis. “In the upcoming weeks, the committee will begin its annual budget hearings for the 2013-14 state budget. I look forward to working on another responsible spending plan as a member of this committee.”

“Representative Ellis has been a crucial member of the Appropriations Committee for several legislative sessions,” said Appropriations Committee Chairman William Adolph (R-Delaware). “I am pleased that he will bring his experience to the committee leadership team as our subcommittee chairman on criminal justice.”

Additionally, Ellis was appointed secretary of the House Ethics Committee, and will continue to serve on the House Rules Committee. Ellis also remains a member of the House Consumer Affairs, chairman of its Telecommunications Subcommittee; along with the Judiciary and Liquor Control committees.
