Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Lloyd Smucker (PA-16) today announced that he will be representing the people of Pennsylvania’s 16th Congressional District on the influential Budget, Transportation and Infrastructure, and Education and the Workforce committees.
“It is an honor to receive a seat on each of these committees. My assignments ensure our district is represented on some of the most influential committees in the House,” said Rep. Smucker. “I look forward to applying my small business experience and problem solving skills as a legislator to find solutions to the problems we face as a country. I'll work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to strengthen our economy, improve our nation’s aging infrastructure, and reduce the regulatory burden on small businesses so they can expand and create jobs."
“I am thrilled to have Lloyd’s hardworking, principled leadership on these committees,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan. “His assignments position him well to address issues like poverty, regulatory reform, and job creation, and I look forward to his active participation to improve the lives of the people he is here to represent.”
“Lloyd’s business background and work on significant infrastructure bills in the Pennsylvania State Senate made him an obvious choice for the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee here in the House. His commitment to fiscally responsible solutions for our nation’s aging infrastructure will be a welcomed addition to our committee, and I’m thrilled to add another member with both business and legislative experience to our ranks,” said Chairman Bill Shuster.
“Rep. Smucker has spent decades in the private sector running a successful business, creating jobs, and meeting a payroll. This experience will be invaluable to his work on the House Budget Committee as we propose pro-growth policies that will create more opportunity and help budget responsibly – just like families and businesses do every day. Rep. Smucker is a great addition to our committee and I look forward to working with him,” said Interim Chairman Diane Black.
“Lloyd Smucker’s leadership on education policy in the Pennsylvania State Senate and 25 years of experience as a family business owner make him well-suited to serve on the Education and the Workforce Committee. I look forward to working closely with Congressman Smucker as we tackle the challenges facing students, families, and small business owners,” said Chairwoman Virginia Foxx.
