Hearing to Focus on the Cost of Government Overreach, Overregulation
WHAT: State lawmakers from across Pennsylvania will travel to New Holland to hear how Lancaster County job creators are being handcuffed by the cumbersome, costly and complex regulations imposed by state agencies. Led by House Majority Policy Committee Chairman Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) and Rep. Dave Zimmerman (R-Lancaster), the legislative hearing will feature testimony from local business owners and members of the Lancaster-area agriculture community about how government overreach and overregulation is costing them, and ultimately costing the local economy.

The hearing is part of the Policy Committee’s agenda to grow and strengthen Pennsylvania’s middle class. Over the course of several hearings this fall, the committee will hear from Pennsylvania residents, community leaders and businesses on how state government can best assist them, and when to get out of their way, as they undertake efforts to create jobs and improve, prosper and strengthen our communities.

WHO: Benninghoff, Zimmerman and legislators from across the state.

Testifiers will include: Gerald Martin, Gerald G. Martin & Sons Excavating & Trucking; Calvin Ewell, H.R. Ewell Inc.; Alfred Wanner, Wanner’s Pride N Joy Farm; Travis Eby, M.H. Eby Inc.; and Gustavo Rendon, Superior Plastic Products.

WHEN: Tuesday, Nov. 28, from 1-3 p.m.

WHERE: District office of Rep. Dave Zimmerman, 127 Peters Road, New Holland.
