Rothman Appointed to Commission to Honor Pennsylvania’s Role in America’s Founding

Senator Greg Rothman (R-34) has been appointed to the Pennsylvania Commission for the United States Semiquincentennial and the Infrastructure Improvements and Projects Committee of the America250PA Commission.

The Pennsylvania Commission for the United States Semiquincentennial (America250PA) was established by the legislature and Governor in 2018 to plan, encourage, develop, and coordinate the commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States, Pennsylvania’s integral role in that event, and the impact of its people on the nation’s past, present, and future.

The group’s goal is to engage citizens from across the Commonwealth, to celebrate the contributions of Pennsylvanians to our Commonwealth’s history but also to our Nation’s history, to use our history to encourage and inspire future leaders, and to spark an interest in the next generation to appreciate all the triumphs, trials and tribulations that shaped our Commonwealth.

“I’m excited about the Commission’s purpose and our plans for the next two years,” Rothman said.  “I appreciate the opportunity to engage with Pennsylvanians of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences and unite to celebrate our Commonwealth’s history as the birthplace of freedom.”

Rothman was appointed by Senate Majority Leader Joe Pittman for both the Commission and the Committee, to fill a vacancy left by the departure of Senator Linda Culver.
