HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall (R-Berks/Schuylkill) issued the following statement after the news that Senator John Yudichak (I-Luzerne) and Senator Mario Scavello (R-Monroe) will not seek reelection in 2022.
“I was disappointed this week to hear that two of my neighbors, Senators Yudichak and Scavello, will not seek reelection to the Senate. They have both worked successfully for many years to bring more jobs to northeastern Pennsylvania. The three of us have been friends for decades while serving together in both the House and the Senate.
“It’s been an honor to work with Senator Yudichak on incredibly impactful legislation over the years, including tax credits for our local coal energy plants, the Waste Tire Recycling Act, and the SHINE program in our schools.
“Senator Scavello is a real leader in our never-ending efforts to find a better way to fund our public schools, rather than our archaic and unfair system of school property taxes from the 1800s. I wish Mario and John nothing but the best in all of their future endeavors!”
