HARRISBURG (February 1) – State Senator Andy Dinniman has been elected vice president of the Pennsylvania State Public School Building Authority (SPSBA) and the Pennsylvania Higher Education Facilities Authority (PHEFA).

The SPSBA and the PHEFA finance the construction and improvement of public school and higher education facilities, respectively, with the goal of making lower cost tax-exempt financings available to school districts, community colleges, area vocational/technical schools, intermediate units, colleges, and universities. Governor Tom Wolf serves as president of both the SPSBA and PHEFA.

“I welcome the opportunity to serve as vice president of the SPSBA and PHEFA and will work with my fellow board members to make lower cost financing available to public education facility projects throughout the Commonwealth,” Dinniman said.

Those positions come in addition to Dinniman’s reappointment as Minority Chair of the Senate Education Committee for the 2017-18 legislative session.

“I look forward to working with state Senator John Eichelberger, the new majority chair of the Senate Education Committee, to find solutions that will benefit students, schools, and taxpayers throughout Pennsylvania,” Dinniman said. “First and foremost, I plan to continue to work in a bipartisan manner to rein in the proliferation of excessive and expensive standardized testing, like the Keystone Exams, which cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars and rob students of valuable classroom instruction time.”

This marks the fifth consecutive session that Dinniman, who holds a doctorate in education, has been appointed to the post. He will also continue to serve as a member of the state Board of Education, the Education Commission of the States, and the Lincoln University Board of Trustees.

In addition to education, Dinniman was assigned to the following committees:

  • Agriculture and Rural Affairs.
  • Environmental Resources and Energy.
  • State Government.
  • Transportation.
  • Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness.

He will also continue to represent the Senate on the Ben Franklin Technology Development Authority, the Joint Legislative Conservation Committee, and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.

“I look forward to serving on all these boards and committees and continuing to work to represent the citizens of Chester County’s 19th Senatorial District,” Dinniman said.
