Tomlinson Sworn In To Office During Ceremonies in Harrisburg

(HARRISBURG) — Senator Tommy Tomlinson (R-Bucks) was sworn in to his fifth term in office today during ceremonies at the State Capitol in Harrisburg. Tomlinson represents the 6th Senatorial District. He was first elected to the Senate in 1994 after serving in the House of Representatives from 1991 through 1994.

The senator serves as Chairman of the Senate Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Committee, which works to protect the rights of Pennsylvania consumers and ensures that individuals in regulated professions adhere to the highest standards. He is Vice Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, which shapes the state’s multi-billion-dollar budget.

Tomlinson is also a member of the Community, Economic and Recreational Development, Transportation, Education, and Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committees.

“As Vice Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, my first priority will be to work with the new Administration and House to ensure that taxes and spending are held in check, so state residents can keep more of their hard-earned money,” Tomlinson said.  “If we want to work toward economic recovery, we have to hold the line on spending just like working families do.”

Tomlinson said he will also focus on constituent services and making sure that people in his district have access to state government and to programs and services that they need.
