Linglestown Gazette: Marsico set to start 11th term in Pa. House

Marsico set to start 11th term in Pa. House

Linglestown Gazette recently chatted via e-mail with state Rep. Ron Marsico, R-Lower Paxton Twp., to get the lowdown on his top issues for the new two-year legislative session that begins January 26. Marisco has served in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives since 1988.

There's no surprise what's front and center on state Rep. Ron Marsico's priority list these days – the sour economy and a looming state budget deficit that is estimated to be as high as $2 billion. "Pennsylvania’s finances will be a top priority in the upcoming legislative session," said Marsico.

Marsico was recently appointed to serve as the Republican chair of the House Judiciary Committee. He hopes the post will help him spearhead the modernization of state laws that deal with small games of chance, a big issue for volunteer fire companies, veterans groups and other nonprofit organizations.

Linglestown is also on Marsico's mind with construction likely to start this spring on the long-awaited village improvement project. "We need to be sure that we maintain the integrity of the village, while doing what we can to increase the interest and economy of the historic town," he said.
