HARRISBURG – Rep. Kate Klunk (R-Hanover) has been appointed to serve as a deputy whip in the 2021-22 Legislative Session, which begins in January, by House Majority Whip, Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Armstrong/Clarion/Forest).

“I am excited to once again serve as a deputy whip in the caucus,” Klunk said. “This role allows me to help propel our legislative priorities forward with the goal of improving the lives of all Pennsylvanians.”

Klunk was recently elected to her fourth term providing a strong voice for the people of the 169th Legislative District, which includes a large swath of southern York County, including Hanover to the west and Shrewsbury Township to the east.

Deputy whips have a variety of responsibilities on the House floor, including assisting with member head counts and helping to promote certain challenging issues facing the House Republican Caucus. They also keep Oberlander informed about issues that might have an effect on the legislative agenda and on the caucus as a whole.

“We are excited that Rep. Klunk has agreed to continue her service as a deputy whip in the new session,” Oberlander said. “Kate’s previous experience as a deputy has allowed her to stay on top of the issues while making sure that the views of her colleagues and constituents are heard. She will continue to be an asset to our team.”
