Harrisburg, December 8, 2016 Senator Judy Schwank was named the Democratic vice-chair of the Senate Appropriations committee by Senate Democratic leader Jay Costa. The committee is the legislative panel charged with allocating billions of taxpayer dollars throughout the commonwealth.

Harrisburg – October 26, 2016 − The State Senate today approved bipartisan legislation authored by Senators Stewart Greenleaf and Judy Schwank that would significantly change the state’s truancy laws.
The legislation, spurred by the 2014 death of a Berks County mother in prison as a result of a truancy violation, shifts the focus of dealing with truancy to schools from the court system, and imposes new requirements before a case can be sent to the courts or a person can be jailed for truancy.
