Creating Competition to Protect Property Owners
When local governments require homeowners, builders or developers to use a specific building code inspector, it creates monopolies on enforcement and can lead to price gouging and poor service. I recently argued in favor of House Bill 349, which I am co-sponsoring, to require local governments that enforce the Uniform Construction Code (UCC) to have at least two or more agencies under contract for UCC administration.
Tax Credits, Minimum Wage Covered at State Budget Hearings
During state budget hearings, I questioned Secretary Dennis Davin of the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), about Pennsylvania’s film tax credit program, and how the governor’s proposed hike in the minimum wage would impact Pennsylvania’s small businesses and young people.
Bill Would Deny State Pension Benefits to Future SRBC Employees
In Reference to House Bill 60, Pa. State Rep. Dan Moul argues in favor of keeping future SRBC workers from the state's pension system who will not truly be Commonwealth employees.

I joined Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale and some of my House colleagues at a recent Capitol news conference at which the auditor general released the findings of audits on the Susquehanna and Delaware River Basin Commissions. A few years ago, I raised questions about these interstate compacts, which are largely unchecked and abusing their regulatory authority. The audits show the commissions, which receive taxpayer funding, inappropriately used taxpayer money for lavish meals and alcohol, and for gift cards to reward employees. I will be taking action to increase transparency, provide legislative oversight and other measures to make the commissions more accountable to taxpayers.
