HARRISBURG – Rep. Josh Kail (R-Beaver/Washington) has been appointed to serve as deputy whip in the 2021-22 Legislative Session, which began this week, by House Majority Whip Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Armstrong/Clarion/Forest).
“As he begins his second term, I remain impressed with Rep. Kail and his dedication to being a thoughtful, hard-working legislator,” Oberlander said. “He represents his district well and has the pulse on what’s happening in southwestern Pennsylvania. His experience will serve us well as a deputy whip, and we are excited to have him on our team.”
Deputy whips have a variety of responsibilities on the House floor, including assisting with member vote counts and helping to promote challenging issues facing the House Republican Caucus. They also keep Oberlander informed about issues that might affect the legislative agenda or the caucus as a whole.
“This is an exciting opportunity, and I’m honored to be chosen for it in just my second term serving the House. I look forward to taking a more active, involved role in the Republican caucus,” Kail said. “With the many problems associated with the pandemic, we certainly have our work cut out for us, but I’m ready to get to work.”
