PA House swears in new member. On it’s first day of session for 2018 (okay, it was a mostly ceremonial day), the state House of Representatives welcomes a new member. Jeanne McNeill, the widow of the late Rep. Dan McNeill, was sworn into office on Tuesday as the new state representative for the 133rd Legislative District in Lehigh County. McNeill’s late husband passed away on Sept. 8, prompting the need for the Dec. 5 special election she ultimately won. After being sworn in, McNeill was given her legislative committee assignments: Environmental Resources and Energy; Game and Fisheries; Labor and Industry; and Local Government.
