Schnee Sworn in as Member of the House
HARRISBURG- Rep. Robert Schnee (R-Luzerne) today was sworn in as representative of the 116th Legislative District in a ceremony at the state Capitol in Harrisburg.

Judge Tarah Toohil, former representative of the district, was present to administer the oath of office.

“I look forward to serving the good people of the 116th district,” Schnee said. “I will put the needs of those same citizens at the forefront of every vote I cast.

Among Schnee’s top priorities are eliminating school property taxes for seniors, eliminating the gas tax and increasing funding for the Hazleton Area School District.

“I want to extend a thank you to my new colleagues in the Pennsylvania State House for the warm welcome I received,” said Schnee. “I also could not be more thankful for my family and friends who have been with me every step of the way.”
