Senator Hutchinson Reappointed to Chair Senate Finance Committee

Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman today (January 13) reappointed Senator Scott Hutchinson to serve as Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee for the 2021-22 Legislative Session. He has held the post since the beginning of the 2017-18 Legislative Session.

“I appreciate the opportunity to continue serving as Chairman of the Finance Committee,” Senator Hutchinson said. “We consider a number of tax bills each session and I look forward to the opportunity to again work with the members of the committee to review these pieces of legislation and ensure that they are in the best interest of the Commonwealth and the people of Pennsylvania.”

Senator Hutchinson, who earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania in 1983, continues to target economic development and job growth as his main legislative priorities as Finance Chairman. The state tax code and the mix of revenues which fund state government are the main purviews of the Finance Committee.  As such, comparisons of the types, provisions, and mixes of taxes with other locations are key components of job competitiveness and business investment.

Senator Hutchinson’s other committee assignments are expected to be announced later this month.
