Representative Turzai Re-Elected Majority Leader
State Rep. Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny County) today was re-elected by his colleagues in the House Republican Caucus to serve as Majority Leader of the House of Representatives for the upcoming legislative session, which will begin January 1.

Turzai’s election as Leader came seven days after Republicans increased their majority from 109 members going into Election Day, to 111 members and retaining control of the state House for the second session in a row. The elections were part of the reorganization session of the Republican Caucus. Republicans hold a 111-92 majority in the state House.

“We ran on our legislative record of accomplishment, which focused on fiscal responsibility, private sector job growth and integrity in government,” Turzai said. “While bringing about fiscal discipline and holding the line on taxes, we still funded public education with more state dollars than ever before. House Republicans are the fiscal stewards of the hard-earned dollars of Pennsylvania families and employers.”

Turzai has represented the 28th Legislative District since 2001. He was elected Majority Leader in the current session when Republicans regained the majority in the 2010 elections. He previously served as whip during the 2009-2010 legislative session. In 2006, he was elected Republican Policy Committee chairman.
