—Rep. Todd Polinchock (R-Bucks), a graduate of the United States Naval Academy, has been appointed to the House Veteran Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee.
“It’s a great honor to be selected for this important committee that studies legislation that impacts those who’ve made the greatest sacrifice for our country,” Polinchock said. “Know that I will use my background to make sure the bills we consider are amended where they need to be or pushed through the House when they best serve the men and women of the military.”
The Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee also focuses on the needs of Pennsylvania’s first responders.
Polinchock graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1985. Before retiring after 20 years of service, he flew more than 75 combat hours over Iraq during Operation Desert Storm. He retired from the Navy as a full commander.
Polinchock was also assigned to the Human Services Committee, which considers legislation that impacts the Department of Human Services and the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs; and the Children and Youth Committee, which studies adoption and child protection issues.
Polinchock, a Realtor who served as president of the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors, will also serve on the Professional Licensure Committee, which maintains jurisdiction over all legislation dealing with the 29 professional and occupational licensing boards located administratively in the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs (BPOA) in the Department of State.
