HARRISBURG – Rep. Tim Twardzik (R-Schuylkill) took the oath of office Tuesday to begin his second term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

“I love where I come from – and it is a true honor to represent and serve my home of Schuylkill County for another term,” Twardzik said. “My Capitol and district office professionals effectively served constituents these past two tumultuous years. Their experience and caring nature play an important role in my ability to meet the needs of our district.”

For the 2023-24 Legislative Session, Twardzik plans to continue focusing on creating jobs, assisting small business owners, health care advocacy, fighting community blight, improving the education system and protecting students.

Most notably from last session, Twardzik’s bill to provide more secure health care ID badges was signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf. Act 79 of 2022 amends the Health Care Facilities Act (HCFA) requirements regarding photo identification badges in health care facilities. Additionally, his legislation to fix the unfair Unemployment Compensation (UC) rate increases placed on small businesses closed during the pandemic shutdowns was also signed into law as Act 156 of 2022.

Twardzik continued his mission to fight blight in Schuylkill County with legislation he introduced that would create the Vacant Property Registration Act, (House Bill 1791). The measure would allow communities to create and maintain a vacant property registration program, which is a blight fighting, smart growth tool used to stabilize and redevelop neighborhoods.

Twardzik concluded, “Although, my work does not stop here – I promise to continue being your voice in Harrisburg and fighting the good fight for the 123rd District and all of Pennsylvania.”
