Rep. Zimmerman Comments on "Taxpayer Budget" - 9/6/2017
In an effort to protect Pennsylvanians from widespread tax increases proposed as a method to close the state’s budget deficit, a group of House Republican Lawmakers unveiled a proposal to bring the Commonwealth’s spending plan into balance without dipping into the checkbooks of taxpayers. The “Taxpayer’s Budget” would utilize money currently sitting idle in over 200 state-held accounts and redirect it to close budgetary shortfalls.

Rep. Zimmerman Joins Penn State Ag Council, 4-Hers in Calling on Gov to Restore Funding to Vital Ag Research & Extension Programs - 3/9/2016
House lawmakers joined dozens of Penn State Ag Council members and 4-H members Wednesday in the state capitol to call for the restoration of more than $50 million in funding for the university’s agriculture research and extension programs. A failure to restore the funding vetoed in December by Governor Wolf would force Penn State University to begin shutting down its agriculture operations and outreach by May 1st, putting at risk an estimated 1,100 jobs within Penn State Extension and research. In addition to the impact on jobs, eliminating the $50 million investment could cause an economic loss for the state of more than $260 million. And it would also mean an end to Penn State’s 4-H program, which helps to prepare future leaders in the state’s agriculture community. Rep. Dave Zimmerman (R-Lancaster) attended the event and commented on the effort to restore this crucial funding.

Zimmerman Comments on Passage of Wine & Liquor Privatization and Public Pension Reform Legislation - 6/30/2015
The Pennsylvania House voted this week on a number of statewide issues that directly impact Pennsylvania communities and taxpayers.

The House also voted Tuesday to approve House Bill 466, which would end full government control of wine and spirits sales in the Commonwealth by giving beer distributors the opportunity to obtain a license to sell wine and spirits under a single roof, and would provide other current license holders with additional retail sale options. Rep. David Zimmerman (R-Lancaster) offered comment following passage of these bills:
